Each model comes with its own instruction manual and we recommend that you hire a professional to ensure compliance of your equipment. Here are some instructions that should come handy when inspecting an extinguisher.

Extinguisher inspection

Several steps must be followed during the inspection of a fire extinguisher. In fact, all portable fire extinguishers must be inspected at least once a year or when circumstances require their inspection.

  • The location of the fire extinguisher must be optimal and safe.

  • The extinguisher must be accessible and easy to find.

  • The seal or manipulation indicator must be present and in good condition.

  • The extinguisher must be full at the time of the inspection.

  • The extinguisher must not display obvious forms of degradation, corrosion, leakage or obstruction.

  • Manometers or pressure gauges must show an operating pressure.

  • If applicable, the condition of wheel units must be impeccable (wheels, carts and nozzles).

  • The WHMIS (Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System) label must be in place during the inspection of the extinguisher and at all times. This label is provided by the vendor of the extinguisher and informs you about the dangers associated with the use of the product and the precautions to be taken.

  • Complete inspection according to the NFPA 10 standard
