Fires are one of the most common types of workplace emergencies. One of the most basic safety measures to have on hand in case of fire is a fire extinguisher. But if you don’t have enough extinguishers, they’re not easily accessible or they don’t work, they won’t be much help should a fire break out in your workplace.

HOW TO USE THE TOOL

Use this form to inspect the fire extinguishers in your workplace to ensure that they’re full, not damaged, accessible, etc. Note the serial numbers of any extinguishers that need maintenance or further inspection, such as hydrostatic pressure testing. You should inspect your extinguishers monthly and note the date of each inspection and the initials of the person performing it on each extinguisher’s tag.  And be sure to address any issues identified in the inspection, such as materials blocking access to an extinguisher.
