Fire Extinguishers are a requirement for all commercial building businesses and establishments. This includes businesses and establishments with and without a kitchen. From restaurants to schools and offices, Steel Mountain Fire & Safety provides all fire and safety services.
Employers must provide approved portable fire extinguishers in their establishment. In fact, all extinguishers require mounting in a spot that’s easily accessible to employees in case of a fire. This is to also help keep employees from a possible injury.
Fire Extinguishers Training
OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) requires that all employees of a business are trained in the use of a portable fire extinguisher.
Steel Mountain can train all employees of a business or establishment. One popular option is to schedule training days with everyone and teach to one large group. This saves employers and employees substantial time away from their jobs.
Service & Inspection
OSHA has strict and specific requirements for portable extinguishers in a business or establishment. It is also required that fire extinguishers are maintained, fully charged, operating properly, and kept in designated places at all times, except during use.
Steel Mountain has trained professionals who can service and inspect your portable fire extinguishers. They will check to see if they follow all of the OSHA requirements. Plus, they confirm all extinguishers are operational and in the proper places. That way you have peace of mind that your fire extinguisher is up to current fire safety standards when the Fire Marshal pays you a visit.
