Fire Extinguisher Testing

Fire Extinguisher Testing

Ensuring that all fire extinguishers are fully functioning and well maintained throughout your building is an intrinsic part of the fire safety duty of care of all building operators and employers.

The law governing fire safety including fire extinguishers, is The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRO), which applies to non-domestic premises in England and Wales.

In Scotland, Fire Safety is covered by Part 3 of the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 and the Fire Safety (Scotland) Regulations 2006. The British Standard applicable to fire extinguisher maintenance is BS5306, which also provides guidance on the correct fire extinguisher for different types of fire.
