If you followed last week’s tip and found your fire extinguishers, did you look at them? Do you know what kind of condition they are in?
On a monthly basis, check that the seal is still intact, the pin is in place, the inspection tag is up to date, the charge is in the green and the extinguisher is accessible.
We are toying around with calling this 5 part inspection the A-PIGS test as a mnemonic (memory aid):
- Accessible Allways
- Pin in Place
- Inspection tag Intact
- Green Gauge
- Seal Set
What do you think?
