Fire Extinguisher Servicing and Maintenance

Fire extinguisher servicing and maintenance is the functionality and reliability of fire extinguishers in your building, It is a critical aspect of fire safety management for all building operators and employers. Regular servicing and testing ensure that these vital safety tools are always ready to protect lives and property in the event of a fire. Ensuring that fire extinguishers are in proper working condition can make the difference between a minor incident and a major disaster.

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRO)

In the UK, fire safety regulations are governed by specific laws. In England and Wales, The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRO) sets out the requirements for fire safety, including the maintenance and testing of fire extinguishers. This legislation mandates that all fire safety equipment, including fire extinguishers, must be regularly maintained to remain effective and compliant with safety standards. The RRO places the responsibility on building operators and employers to conduct regular risk assessments, implement appropriate safety measures, and ensure that all fire safety equipment is functional.

This standard outlines best practices for the commissioning, servicing, and periodic inspection of fire extinguishers. It specifies the types of extinguishers suitable for different classes of fires and includes recommendations for the frequency and type of maintenance checks required. Following BS 5306 helps ensure that fire extinguishers are not only compliant with legal requirements but also optimally prepared to handle specific fire scenarios, thereby enhancing overall safety in the building.
