  Inspection and Maintainance


  • An inspection of fire extinguishers is a "quick check" to give reasonable assurance that it is fully charged and operable
  • The value of an inspection lies in the frequency, regularity, and thoroughness with which it is conducted.
  • Inspections of fire extinguishers should be conducted every month
During inspection, we ensure that:
  • The fire extinguisher is in a location that makes it readily accessible
  • The fire extinguisher is set up properly for easy handling, and that nothing is obstructing access to any parts of it, including the hose
  • The pressure dial is checked to see if it needs to be charged. The needle should be in the green zone
  • The pin and tamper seal are intact and the pull pin is properly secured within the handle and held in place by the tamper seal
  • There are no dents, leaks, rust, chemical deposits or other signs of abuse or wear
  • The fire extinguisher does not have any cracks, dents, or rust on its shaft which might hinder its performance
  • Corrosive chemicals, oil, gunk etc. that may have deposited on the extinguisher are wiped off
  • There is a visible instruction label on the fire extinguisher, and that it is legible
  • No modifications were made to the fire extinguisher that might affect its performance level
  • The inspection form on each fire extinguisher is completed
  • The Certificate of Inspection is completed and signed off
  • Extinguishers requiring maintenance or replacement are attended to
  • Maintenance is a "thorough check" of the extinguisher. It is intended to give maximum assurance that an extinguisher will operate effectively and safely
  • It includes a thorough examination and any necessary repair, recharging or replacement
  • All fire extinguishers must undergo maintenance and be recharged immediately after use regardless of how much they were used
  • Maintenance of all fire extinguishers is done by our experienced technicians at our fully equipped workshop
  • All fire extinguishers must undergo maintenance whenever specifically indicated by an inspection or at least every 12 months irrespective of their condition
