Fire Extinguisher Stands
Fire extinguishers should be located in visible positions that relate to recommended escape routes, accessible at all times and ideally in a stand or cabinet.
In addition having a proper dedicated fire extinguisher stand or cabinet helps to prevent extinguishers from being exposed to:
- Chemical deposits
Using a stand prevents the need to keep replacing extinguishers, which given correct storage would not have been damaged thus saving you money.
Plus having a proper extinguisher cabinet or stand discourages staff from moving extinguishers away from their proper location, which could create a serious problem in an emergency.
As all UK employers have a legal responsibility under the Fire Safety Order (FSO) to ensure that fire extinguishers within their workplace are regularly serviced, kept in good repair and working order a proper extinguisher stands make a sound investment for any UK business.
Dedicated storage also makes it easier for regular maintenance and checks to be made quickly and effectively saving time and resources.
Further to this, it is also vital that extinguishers don’t get blocked by equipment or used inappropriately and having a dedicated stand/cabinet can help to prevent this from happening.
