Risk is unavoidable in any workplace, but how a company chooses to manage that risk is what makes a difference in the outcome. In many areas, though, there are hard and fast rules governing the management of certain types of risk. Fire, for instance, is a threat to any structure and can occur without warning because of faulty equipment, an accident, or any other number of reasons. That is why fire extinguisher training in Brisbane is a mandatory requirement for many workplaces. When an emergency does occur, quick-thinking actions by those trained in first response actions can make all the difference.
Not all fires are the same, though, and neither are all fire extinguishers. That means that not only are there different tactics and techniques to use in fighting fires that can appear in the workplace, but different tools as well. These require special instruction to use effectively. At the same time, these tools don't stay good forever. Regular fire extinguisher testing for your Brisbane business is essential to ensure that if the time comes, they'll work as intended. At 1st Choice Fire Safety and Training, we have the knowledge, experience, and flexibility necessary to offer a range of services to your business — plus a fast way to purchase any of the equipment you need for full compliance.

Do you need fire extinguisher service for your Brisbane location? Australian standards, AS1851-2012, stipulate that for maximum effectiveness, testing should occur approximately every six months, with more in-depth testing slated for every five years of extinguisher life.
