Fire extinguisher testing easily the simplest way of safeguarding your business and the lives of those within the workplace should there be a fire related incident.
Most domestic, commercial and non-industrial fires can be dealt with using a portable fire extinguisher and with simple solutions for maintaining and testing portable fire extinguishers can not only save lives but property also.
In Australia there are various types of fire extinguishers for a specific type of fire and each extinguisher is colour coded according to its contents and should be placed in the specific environment matching the risk of the potential fire and what fuels it. An example is a water extinguisher (identified by its red band or no band) would not be used in a commercial kitchen when the biggest risk is a fire fuelled by oil. So each identifying band identifies the extinguishers content and has picture instructions of the types of fires it can put out.
