Have you checked your fire extinguisher?
It’s good to get in the habit of noting an annual check of a Fire Extinguisher in a person’s home that you’re providing support to or even in your own home.
Important things to observe:
- Is the extinguisher still present in its designated location?
- Has any damage occurred to the equipment?
- Are there any obstructions blocking the equipment from view or from easy access?
- Is the extinguisher fully charged and operational?
What should you look for during a visual inspection?
- Look for obvious signs of physical damage, such as corrosion, leakage, or dents.
- Check the pressure gauge to make sure the indicator is in the operating range.
- Make sure the pull-pin is not missing and the pull pin seal is intact.
- Verify the date of the last professional inspection.
- Date and initial the back of the tag to log the monthly visual inspection.
If there are any concerns with the fire extinguisher you are checking, please let your supervisor know immediately. You can also email our Health & Safety Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, to inform them of any concerns with a fire extinguisher and/or any other safety concerns you might have in your workplace.
