The Importance Of Fire Extinguisher Maintenance
As a business owner, it can be very easy to forget about your fire extinguishers until it's time to use them. Nevertheless, if not adequately maintained, you might be putting your employees, guests, and business grounds at major risk. Considering that fire extinguisher are your first line of defense when it comes to stopping the spread of a fire, it's vital that you keep them in working order.
Check the tags
On the day your fire extinguishers are delivered to your facilities, they need to first be commissioned. This simply means that they must be assembled in the proper manner, and a variety of checks must be performed on them to guarantee they are effective from the day they are purchased.
As soon as these checks have actually been completed, a maintenance tag will be connected to the extinguisher, outlining crucial information concerning the checks that were performed and the extinguisher itself. These will include:
- The date
- The weight of the extinguisher information of the individual carrying out the checks
- The next service date
- The extended service date (the date the extinguisher needs to be actively tested to ensure it operates properly).
Although the law states that fire extinguishers should be checked annually, we recommend that checks should be completed monthly. These checks should ensure that your extinguishers are all in working order when it comes round to that annual check-up. When performing these checks, look for the following:
- No superficial wear and tear
- The pressure gauge is at the correct level
- Anti-tamper seals haven’t been broken
- No locking pins missing
Fire Extinguisher Maintenance Procedures
Maintenance procedures should feature the procedures specified in the manufacturer's service guide and a comprehensive examination of the basic components of the fire extinguisher, featuring the following:
- Mechanical parts of all fire extinguishers
- Extinguishing agent
- Expelling means

This is completed by doing an external examination. An internal examination can additionally be needed as part of your maintenance. Details on how to do an internal examination are located in your fire extinguisher service manual.
