Fire Extinguisher Maintenance

Fire extinguishers are required on the premises of businesses to ensure good protection against fires.

Besides the obligation to acquire the proper equipment for fire protection, businesses in Singapore are also under the obligation to ensure proper inspection and maintenance of their fire extinguishers. These inspections can only be carried on by a certified service, so you should check the PTE LTD companies that offer this kind of maintenance.

What Do Regulations Say?

SCDF (Singapore Civil Defense Force) requires all owners or occupants of a building to be responsible of the maintenance, inspection and good working order of the fire extinguishers they have on their premises. Even if you are not the owner of the building where your business carries its activities, under the Singapore Standard, Code of Practice SS 578, Use and Maintenance of Portable Fire Extinguishers, you have the obligation to ensure all of the above.

The same act stipulates that the individuals in charge of inspecting, tagging and maintaining fire extinguishers must be qualified and trained for such activities.

What Does An Inspection Look Like?

When our experts visit your building to inspect the fire extinguishers and other fire safety systems installed on the premises, they will proceed with a visual inspection. They will check that the hose of the extinguisher is not blocked, they will search for any signs of damage, and they will see if the instructions are still readable. If your fire extinguisher is expired, they can recommend you to purchase a new one. They will also tag the fire extinguishers, to let SCDF inspectors know that the equipment was verified.

Exercise due diligence by preventing any mishaps from happening and replacing expired fire extinguishers. Ensure that the required inspections are carried out by experts, purchasing our products and use our services for your regular inspection and maintenance.
