Many businesses choose to take matters into their own hands with regards to fire safety in Sydney. They undertake fire training, appoint fire marshals in each department and secure the equipment that they need and secure everything in place. However, unless this preparatory work is not followed up by sSydney fire extinguisher testing services, businesses face the possibility of discovering that their equipment is defective at the worst possible moment.
Why Professional Fire Extinguisher Testing is Essential For Sydney Businesses
The right time to test your fire extinguishers is at the point of purchase, which should then be followed by regular testing to afford you and your workforce a degree of protection that is necessary for safe working environments. Even if you never use your fire extinguisher you must request professional servicing to pressure test and refill it every five years.
At Jim’s Fire Safety, we work with businesses throughout Australia that are fortunate to never have had a fire on their premises, but continue to check their equipment, which is what is expected under the prevailing legislation, rules and regulations. You cannot count on an unused fire extinguisher that has not been tested. It is also important to bear in mind that damage and exposure to contaminants can compromise and render them useless.
How Often Should Sydney Fire Extinguishers Be Tested?
A question that our service professionals are asked regularly by customers is how often they should have their fire extinguishers tested. Everything that we do here at Jim’s Fire Safety is informed by the rules that apply in each territory. The AS1851 indicates that all portable and wheeled fire extinguishers should be tested every six months and that pressure testing and refills need to be carried out at least every five years.
Our fire extinguisher service in Sydney affords businesses the flexibility that they want in terms of the testing that they believe is necessary. As such, those that prefer to test every month are accommodated in the same way as those who prefer to stick to the guidelines mentioned above. If you believe that your equipment is somewhat compromised then it is important to seek testing as soon as possible.
Businesses that discover that they need new extinguishers are encouraged to seek professional advice before they spend their money. The reality is that there are different kind of fire extinguishers for different kinds of fires. You want to make sure that the ones you buy are appropriate for the kind of fire hazards that are in your workplace. Investing in the wrong kind of fire extinguisher could make a fire that starts worse, so it is crucial to choose wisely and with the benefit of expert knowledge.

Fire break-outs are caused by many things such as faulty equipment, sheer human error or carelessness. This can be compounded by the failure to have the right firefighting equipment necessary, leading to injury or loss of lives.
While some people may invest in buying fire safety equipment, one of the reasons they then neglect to have their equipment checked after installation is the expense. At Jim’s Fire Safety, we offer fire extinguisher testing and other fire safety equipment testing in Sydney at an extremely reasonable cost.
A functional fire extinguisher will quickly put out a fire before it has chance to spread and get out of control. One that is defective will be ineffective in the event of a fire, causing you to risk everything. That is why it is important to maintain it in perfect working order and to do that, you must carry out the regular scheduled maintenance, plus other maintenance as required.
Maintaining a Functional Fire Extinguisher
In the event of a fire, fire extinguishers are extremely useful, often managing to contain the flames before they spread. As such, investing in keeping them functional and ready for use whenever they are called upon is guaranteeing your safety and the safety of those around you.
More often than not, fire extinguishers are purchased, mounted on a wall and promptly forgotten about. Most people are even unaware that the extinguishers require servicing, being content to just know that they have one on hand.
However, there’s more to just owning a fire extinguisher, and there are many compelling reasons to maintain your extinguisher in good working order, besides the obvious one of keeping you safe.
Surprising Benefits of Fire Extinguishers
A surprising fact that many are ignorant of is the role fire extinguishers play in keeping the environment healthy. All fires cause pollution by releasing harmful emissions into the air that negatively affect humans. It is the reason more people in a fire die from toxic fumes inhalation rather than from burns.
Fires also release large amounts of carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, into the atmosphere. A fire extinguisher will quickly put out a fire, preventing both the toxic fumes and carbon dioxide from being released.
Apart from the positive effects using a fire extinguisher has on the environment, another surprising benefit is the savings on the use of water. Putting out fires requires tons of water and should you be able to extinguish the flames with an extinguisher before requiring the intervention of a fire engine, you help to conserve water.
We Keep Your Extinguishers Functional
Our certified technicians work to keep your fire extinguishers from becoming non-functional.
A recent survey in Europe by the European Committee of the Manufacturers of Fire Protection Equipment and Fire Fighting Vehicles, EUROFEU, showed that of the 2,600 cases studied, 81.5% of fires were successfully put out using a fire extinguisher.
That is a compelling reason for you to ensure your safety, and that of your establishment, by maintaining your fire extinguisher in good working order. We offer annual and other routine fire extinguisher services in Sydney so that you can rely on your extinguisher when you need it.
