Fire Extinguisher Certification

The frequency of fire extinguisher certification depends on local regulations, the type of fire extinguisher, and the specific environment in which it is located. However, a general guideline is to have fire extinguishers inspected and certified annually. This involves a thorough examination by a certified professional to ensure the extinguisher is in proper working condition, including checking the pressure, seals, and other essential components.

In addition to annual certifications, fire extinguishers may require more frequent inspections. Monthly visual inspections by the owner or designated personnel are often recommended. During these checks, individuals should look for visible signs of damage, tampering, or other issues affecting the extinguisher’s functionality.

It’s crucial to adhere to local fire safety regulations and guidelines, as they may specify more frequent inspections or certification intervals based on factors like the type of extinguisher, its location, and the specific industry or setting. Regular maintenance and certification help ensure the extinguisher’s effectiveness in the event of a fire and contribute to overall safety and compliance with legal requirements. If any issues are identified during inspections, immediate action should be taken to address and rectify them.
