Extinguishers come in many types and sizes. You must use the correct extinguisher for different types of fires.
Contact our friendly team and find out what extinguisher is right for you. For a business we always recommend an extinguisher 2.5kg or larger. You have a duty of care and anything smaller runs a risk of not doing the job.
Always keep in mind that what you can do in your home is not always legal at a business. As an owner/occupier you are legally responsible to have your fire fighting equipment tested according to the Australian Standards (AS). AS1851:2005 states that an extinguisher must be checked every 6 months and pressure tested after 5 years. You must be able to upon request produce records showing that this testing occured.
Since your staff are responsible for your customers/parons or the workplace they should be trained to use fire fighting equipment like extinguishers. You must be able to produce records showing you provided induction and on-going training. It is always recommended that your Fire Safety Advisor trains your staff so contact us today about our training or click here to find out more.
