Fire Extinguisher Safety

Federal and state regulations require fire extinguishers be placed throughout a workplace.

Extinguishers are required to have monthly visual inspections by someone in your company and a yearly inspection by a qualified inspector.

Fire extinguishers are labeled with a class system to match the type of hazard at your facility. The different classes of fire extinguishers are defined.
