The placement and upkeep of fire extinguishers should be a bare minimum even the most average of fire safety strategies. It is a legal requirement to maintain your fire extinguishers. It is now the law in Britain that you, as a responsible employer, must provide your premises with working fire extinguishers and to have the extinguishers tested annually (known as ‘discharge testing’). This is by virtue of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (see additionally BS3506 Pt 3 and BEN3). If you fail to maintain your fire extinguishers and your premises are subsequently damaged by fire your negligence will also be grounds upon which your insurer can withhold settlement funds for insured losses.
But you don't need worry. If you’re reading this you still have time to ensure your legal and moral responsibilities are taken care of when it comes to fire extinguisher maintenance. If you choose to engage the services of North West Fire Solutions you can be assured your fire extinguishers will be in a full working condition should you be unlucky enough to experience fire.
Don’t be caught out when it comes to fire safety. Call the team today!
Once you call our offices to enquire about our fire extinguisher maintenance services we shall arrange for our engineer to come to your property at a pre-arranged and convenient time in order to commence fire extinguisher testing. This can typically coincide with fire alarm maintenance or PAT testing work we carry out on your premises.
