Fire extinguisher servicing relates to businesses where fire extinguishers are used within the building and therefore required under The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 to have annual fire extinguisher servicing carried out and also for insurance purposes.
Annual checks are required to make sure that all fire extinguishers in operation are in full working order and ready to be used in the event of a fire. Problems can arise from seals deteriorating, valves sticking or simply a fire extinguisher may have been damaged without any obvious signs whilst being part of a building’s fixtures and fittings.
A fire extinguisher service involves inspecting each fire extinguisher on site each year and called a Basic Fire Extinguisher Service. In addition, some fire extinguishers may also require Extended Servicing which is carried every 5 / 10 years depending on the fire extinguisher type. Recharging of fire extinguishers can be carried out if discharged along with Overhauling of Co2 fire extinguishers where relevant. In addition to the above maintenance, the service identifies damaged or non-compliant fire extinguishers in need of replacement.
Please be aware that once the annual fire extinguisher service has been completed, you must also carry out and log weekly visual checks on all the fire extinguishers.
