Why you need Fire Extinguisher Servicing
Office Test tests and services all types of fire extinguisher, including water, powder, CO2, foam and wet chemical, to British Standard BS5306, providing assurance that your extinguishers meet the requirements of all insurance companies.
Failing to maintain fire extinguishers places you in violation of Health and Safety and Local Authority guidelines as well as National and European legislation. It may also place you in breach of the terms of your insurance cover, invalidating any claim you might make.
Office Test provides periodic Fire Extinguisher Servicing, involving inspection and maintenance of the gauges, moving parts, tubes, valves, and operating mechanisms of each unit, as well as checking for exhausted extinguishers, and ensuring that anti-tamper tags are in place and the units are in physically sound condition.
What the regulations say
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires that all fire safety equipment be “maintained in an efficient state, in efficient working order and in good repair”
This Order applies to all commercial environments as well as to any place the public reside in or visit. The Order requires employers to undertake a comprehensive fire risk assessment. A designated member of staff must be made responsible for Health and Safety and accountable for the servicing of both fire extinguishers and alarms, and for ensuring that, where fitted, any fire protection equipment is maintained to the relevant standard and with proper records bain maintained.
