FIRE EXTINGUISHER TESTING

REGULAR SERVICING & MAINTENANCE OF FIRE EQUIPMENT IS ESSENTIAL. 

Fire extinguishers and other fire equipment in the workplace, forms an essential part of building fire safety compliance. 

Regular servicing and maintenance of your fire equipment is essential in ensuring a safe working environment and being prepared for the possibility of an emergency in the workplace.

Australian standards and regulatory authorities require fire equipment to be serviced and maintained as per the service schedules in AS1851-2012 Routine Service of Fire Protection Systems And Equipment.

For example,

  • All portable and wheeled fire extinguishers need to be tested every six months.

  • Fire Extinguisher pressure testing and refills should be carried out at least once every five years.

 

All fire equipment must have service records available for a minimum of 7 years and be fully traceable. Outsource Safety provides fire extinguisher and fire equipment servicing and maintenance to all clients ranging from small businesses to leading multi-site organisations across Australia.

Our team of fully trained inspectors will provide you with a detailed report and asset register outlining the items which passed and any items which have failed and are to be removed from service.

Where possible, items that require basic repairs will be repaired once approved by the site contact for the job. All items are tagged with a simple, easy-to-read tag for quick identification for compliance.

Outsource Safety will assist you in developing an inspection schedule and reporting system that will provide evidence to regulatory authorities that a programmed inspection system is in place.
