Aluminium inspection plates for fire extinguishers

The maintenance of safety procedures and equipment ensures an efficient response, if an emergency was to arise.

It is essential that safety procedures are kept up to date and effectively communicated to the workforce.

An excellent standard of all safety equipment should also be ensured.

Below are examples of how sites have maintained fire extinguishers to ensure high levels of safety:

  • Aluminium inspection plates were attached to each fire extinguisher instead of the ‘self-adhesive sticker’ that indicated when fire extinguishers were due to be inspected/serviced;
  • The plates had columns of month/year of the last inspection and month/year of the next inspection pre-printed/embossed on the plate;
  • Holes were punched into the plates to indicate when the last check was completed and when the next inspection is due.

This helps to ensure that information is clear, and will not deteriorate over time, securing the safety of operatives, visitors and the general public.
