Here are a few simple steps to check that your fire extinguishers will be ready if they are needed:
Who’s responsible for checking the extinguishers? Responsibility should be with someone who is reliable and will carry out regular checks.
Are your extinguishers in the correct place? Is each extinguisher visible?
Can they be reached easily?
Are the operating instructions legible and facing outwards?
Has the extinguisher been used? Are the seals and tamper tags in place? Is the extinguisher damaged?
Always remember P.A.S.S. >>> pull, aim, squeeze, sweep
