Fire Extinguisher Servicing in London

WHAT

 

Fire extinguisher servicing is an important part of any companies health and safety and with regular servicing and maintenance they should be available to use should the need arise. 

 

WHY

 

To comply with the fire safety order 2005 on fire extinguisher servicing. The regulatory reform (fire safety) order 2005, requires that all fire safety equipment be maintained in an efficient state, in working order and in good repair.

Failing to maintain the extinguishers places you in violation of health and safety and local authority guidelines.

It may also breach your insurance cover, invalidation any fire related claim you may make.  It may also mean that the fire extinguishers do not work at a crucial time when they are required.

 

WHEN

 

Employers have a legal responsibility under the Fire Safety Order (FSO) to ensure that fire extinguishers within the workplace are regularly serviced, so that they are kept in good repair and working order. 

 

Your extinguishers should be properly serviced once a year by a suitably-qualified engineer and they should also have a weekly check done on them (by the site) checking for any damage, loss of pressure or missing tags.

HOW

 

All extinguishers are serviced to BS5306, by a qualified engineer.  A through visual inspection is carried out on the extinguishers, checking the body, valve and fittings as well as all its working parts.  

Fire extinguishers should be  unobstructed, clearly viable and have their tamper proof seals in place

Office Compliance  Management can undertake a survey of your premises and to identify which types you will require then supply and install them for you. 

"I have your engineer onsite now testing our fire extinguishers. Firstly, he is very knowledgeable and that is exactly what we needed. I felt our old company were just selling us products rather than doing what we actually needed"
