Inspections Ensure Your Fire Extinguisher Will Work When You Need It

Fire Extinguisher inspections confirm that the device is visible, unobstructed, and in its designated location. The inspector will check to make sure the locking pin is intact and that the tamper seal is not broken. Our specialists inspect fire extinguishers for signs of physical damage, corrosion, leakage, or a clogged nozzle. Then they will test the pressure gauge to ensure it is operational, and lift it to make sure the fire extinguisher is still full. Fire Extinguisher Specialists will also make sure the instructions are legible, and facing in the right direction. The examiner will then mark the inspection month and year on the tag. Fire inspection tags communicate extinguisher inspection requirements to employees and compliance-inspectors. It keeps everyone on schedule and equipment up-to-date.
