10) Fire Extinguishers

All extinguishers have to be inspected at six monthly intervals and if they don’t have a pressure gauge, they may need to be weighed to check they are still full.

Some extinguisher types may require additional tasks to be carried out annually.

Extinguishers need to be emptied, pressure tested and refilled every five years.

There may be other servicing requirements at 3, 5 or 6 years.

• The tests and intervals are to be recorded on a label or metal tag attached to the unit.

• No other work is required, provided that the visual inspection of the extinguisher shows that it is in a serviceable condition, unless the gauge indicates the unit is under pressure or the weight is too   low. Any additional work needed must be approved by the client before being carried out.

Extinguishers must, however, be refilled, even if only partially discharged, between the five year services.
