Many Extinguishers should you possess?
The number of fire extinguishers depends
on the area of your workplace and the risk factor of your business.
In low risk settings, employees should
be within easy reach of any fire extinguisher. It’s advisable to place them
near stairways and exit doors, with proper identification signs. Make sure that
the staff is well-trained in using them and have the extinguishers checked
periodically. Please note, fire extinguishers cannot be sent via the postal service, therefore PO Box addresses are not acceptable as delivery addresses. When ordering your fire extinguishers online please ensure you provide a physical delivery address.
