Do you know the difference between fire extinguishers?
An outbreak of fire is always unexpected. If a fire was to breakout on your premises right now would you or your staff instinctively know which extinguisher to use?
Which extinguisher do you use on a carbonaceous material and which extinguisher would you use on a flammable liquid? Have you seen what happens when water is used on burning oil?
A fire can breakout in numerous situations and with numerous substances from gas or electricity to fat or toxic chemicals.
Under U.K legislation a designated Fire Marshall is required to have suitable and sufficient instruction and training on the appropriate precautions and actions to be taken in order to safeguard him/herself and other relevant persons on the premises. This training should be repeated periodically where appropriate. The responsible person must appoint one or more competent persons to assist him in undertaking the preventive and protective measures.
