Fire Extinguisher Maintenance

As well as making good practical sense, fire extinguisher testing is a legal requirement, even if a fire certificate has been issued for the premises. The fire precautions (workplace) regulations which came into being in 1997 (and amended in 1999) require the majority of employers to carry out a fire risk assessment of their workspace in order to identify, reduce or eliminate potential fire hazards.

By law, employers must also allocate a member of staff to deal with enforcing and protecting Health & Safety issues and this includes all fire extinguishers and their servicing. Annual independent testing is highly recommended to ensure that all devices are fully functioning and will operate without fail in the event of a fire.
