A checklist for fire extinguisher maintenance supports safety inspectors and facility managers in carrying out the scheduled fire extinguisher inspection. During the fire extinguisher inspection, the condition of the fire extinguisher and its location is recorded. A sample fire extinguisher inspection record allows inspectors to proactively identify signs of problems.
In addition, employers are legally obliged to check fire extinguishers at regular intervals to ensure that they are working properly. This monthly fire department check should be taken very seriously, as incidents can quickly pose a serious danger to employees.
For the fire extinguisher maintenance there are legally defined periods of time which must be strictly observed. This test is regulated by the regulation: DIN 14406. If the fire extinguisher is used commercially, it must be tested for the first time after 2 years. Each fire extinguisher is also provided with a test badge, which describes when the next test is due. A checklist supports you in this process.
If your fire extinguisher has been triggered before the specified test period, it must be serviced and refilled immediately. It is very important that the fire extinguisher is always ready for use.
Careful extinguisher maintenance is critical to maintaining safety in the workplace and compliance with regulations. Small mistakes can have serious consequences.With a digital application, safety officers and inspectors can help to ensure that all key points to be checked are investigated and that fire extinguisher maintenance is carried out regularly.
