Outdated, faulty or ineffective fire extinguishers can place lives and property at risk in the case of a fire emergency. That is why it is critical to have fire extinguishers on your premises serviced annually by qualified engineers.
Fire authorities are the main agency responsible for enforcing the law. They will look into complaints, carry out investigations after fires and carry out inspections. Where poor fire safety management is discovered they may prosecute. If there is a very serious risk to life, the fire authority can issue a notice preventing the premises being used for certain things, or preventing people from using all or part of the premises.
HT PAT Testing’s fire extinguisher maintenance program involves testing and servicing your fire extinguishers at the recommended intervals to ensure they are functioning correctly, reach their life expectancy and comply with the relevant British Standards.

Ensure each extinguisher is visible
There should be no obstructions and be easily reached
Operating instructions should be legible and facing outwards so they can easily read
