Portable fire extinguishers (BAFE SP101)
Portable fire extinguishers are part of every business’ fire suppression plan. As with all fire safety devices extinguishers must be fit for purpose, that is of a suitable type(s) for the known fire risk(s), be routinely inspected and replaced where necessary.
Choosing an NSI approved company to conduct service and maintenance, ensures proven competence in maintenance of portable fire extinguisher products.
All portable fire extinguisher technicians must have passed a recognised training course and exam (e.g. FIA , IFEDA or British Fire Consortium). The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires fire extinguisher maintenance to be maintained in accordance with the relevant British Standards. Fire extinguishers should be serviced annually by a competent fire extinguisher technician.
