All employers have a legal responsibility under the Fire Safety Order to ensure that fire extinguishers within the workplace are regularly serviced in order to keep them in good repair and working order.
To ensure compliance with this legislation each company should appoint a ‘responsible person’ within the organisation to carry out regular visual checks of the extinguishers this is to ensure they are not damaged or that they have not been accidentally discharged. These checks should be carried out on a monthly basis, in addition to this an annual service or perhaps biannual service where appropriate should be carried out by a suitably qualified engineer.
