Fire Extinguishers Bridgend

Call 029 2086 7222 Today
Fire extinguishers have been around for almost as long as fire itself. With the first portable extinguisher being invented in 1819, using potassium carbonate in a copper tank with compressed air pressure. different models have followed suit, each with their own unique way of fighting fires. Some models use chemicals which, when mixed, create a foam that can be discharged. Other more modern extinguishers use pressurised air or a gas cartridge to pressurise the agent. Fire extinguishers are vital in the fight against fires and recent developments have included automatic extinguishers and self-activating Fire suppression systems. Fire suppression systems work by releasing afire retardant chemical into the area where the fire is detected, thus smothering the fire and preventing it from spreading. Automatic Fire Extinguishers are also a recent development and are designed to discharge automatically when a fire is detected, helping to control and extinguish fires before they have a chance to spread.

Fire Extinguishers as an Employer in Bridgend

Fire safety in the workplace is of paramount importance. In order to ensure the safety of employees, employers must carry out a fire safety risk assessment and keep it up to date. This assessment should identify potential sources of ignition and combustible materials, as well as the people who may be at risk in the event of a fire. Based on the findings of the assessment, employers need to put in place adequate and appropriate fire safety measures to minimise the risk of injury or loss of life. Fire extinguishers are one type of measure that can be used to help prevent fire in the workplace. They should be placed in strategic locations around the building so that they can be accessed quickly in the event of a fire. Employers should also provide employees with training on how to use fire extinguishers effectively.
