5 Steps of Fire Extinguisher Inspection

5 Steps of Fire Extinguisher InspectionA properly working extinguisher could save many lives. To ensure that fire extinguishers are in good working condition, their inspection should be conducted monthly. Businesses can bring external professionals or train their own employees as part of an overall fire safety strategy. It is critical that employees know about the most common issues, identifying during an inspection, and knows how to respond accordingly. Here are 5 mandatory steps of proper fire extinguisher inspection.

1. Visibility and accessibility

Ensure a fire extinguisher is present in the area, and it is easily visible. It should be easily accessed during an emergency. Also, prevent the extinguisher from being moved and damaged.

2. Physical state

Closely check overall condition, labeling and physical defects of the extinguisher. Metal parts should be free of any signs of damage, as well as serial number and other notes should be readable. Check a secure connection of all extinguisher’s parts. Ensure a proper condition of hose without any cracks. The pin locks prevents accidental discharge of the extinguisher. It also should be checked.

Check the gauge to ensure the needle points to the green area. This means that the extinguisher is fully charged and ready for use. The needle in the left red zone means that the extinguisher is undercharged, and the right red zone signals a danger of being overcharged.

4. Maintenance or inspection tag

Ensure the extinguisher has a maintenance or inspection tag with regular marks.

5. Inspection report

Besides the mark on the inspection tag, the general inspection report should be created. It usually contains summarize observations, any comments, name/signature and date.

How to Improve Fall Protection Policy in the Roofing Industry

How to Improve Fall Protection Policy in the Roofing IndustryThe scary stats

Roofers have the fifth-highest work-related death rate in construction. About 50 roofers are killed on the job each year, most by falls (The Center for Construction Research and Training (CPWR) study). Poor fall protection policy is responsible for most of the fatal falls. Unfortunately, many roofing crews still operate without using any fall protection whatsoever. A neglect of control and accountability is also a problem.

It’s time to act

“All roofing contractors should have a written fall protection program that specifies what type of fall protection is provided, provides adequate training for workers, and enforces fall protection programs,” the study emphasizes. Also we want to add the need of accurate and timely data and constant monitoring of compliance with all measures.

OSHA Training opportunities for roofing workers are huge. Almost 5 million workers have already been trained in jobsite hazard recognition and avoidance techniques. Also, the business of fall protection has exploded into a multi-trillion dollar industry of great demand nowadays. The market competition keeps equipment costs relatively low. This way, any (even the smallest) roofing company can afford high-quality protective equipment and outfit.

Roofing apps as a one more way to increase safety

What about work with data, control and reporting, modern mobile technology is the best solution. Roofing apps allow users to collect necessary data, process and share it right in the field. In-time and accurate data is the key to successful and safe work.
