Q: How do I correctly perform a monthly fire extinguisher inspection?

A: First, know this monthly inspection is mandatory via OSHA and National Fire Codes. This inspection is commonly done inhouse by an employee. There are a
variety of items you want to inspect monthly on fire extinguishers:

  • The extinguisher is properly mounted and not blocked or covered 
  • The extinguisher is charged (in the green) and ready for use
  • The tamper seal is on and is holding the pin in
  • There isn't any physical damage to the extinguisher
  •  Nothing is blocking the nozzle (look in it)
  • The extinguisher is full by weighing it. (mandatory for CO2)
  • The nameplate is visible when you remount the extinguisher
  • There is a valid maintenance tag on the extinguisher that the inspector signs and dates.
