Fire extinguisher servicing is the process of inspecting and maintaining fire extinguishers to ensure that they are in good working condition and ready to use in case of a fire. The purpose of fire extinguisher servicing is to make sure that the extinguisher is fully charged, has no damage, and is capable of discharging effectively.
The process of fire extinguisher servicing involves a visual inspection of the extinguisher to check for any signs of damage, corrosion, or leakage. The pressure gauge and safety pin are also checked to ensure that the extinguisher is fully charged and ready for use. The extinguisher is then discharged to check the pressure and functionality of the nozzle.
If any faults are found during the inspection, the extinguisher is either repaired or replaced. A new tamper seal is then attached to the extinguisher to indicate that it has been serviced and is ready for use.
Fire extinguisher servicing should be carried out annually by a qualified technician or a specialist fire safety company. It is a legal requirement for businesses and organizations to have their fire extinguishers serviced regularly to ensure that they comply with health and safety regulations.
