What is a Monthly Fire Extinguisher Inspection?

A monthly fire extinguisher inspection is a quick visual inspection done by an employee as required by OSHA [29 CFR 1910.157(e)(2).

Typical Monthly Fire Extinguisher Questions:

  • Is the sign in place?
  • Does the handle appear operational?
  • Is the pin and keeper in place?
  • Is the pressure gauge in the operational range?
  • Are there signs of damage or missing hose or nozzle?
  • Does the neck seal appear intact?
  • Any sign of damage or cracks on the body?
  • Labels and tags are attached and show the correct information?
  • Any sign of damage or cracks on the bottom of the extinguisher?
  • Mounting bracket is secure and in a reasonable location?

Annual Fire Extinguisher Inspections

OSHA (OSHA 29 CFR 1910.157(e)(3)) also requires an annual fire extinguisher maintenance inspection which must be performed by a professional fire extinguisher company.

Depending on the type of fire extinguisher, it may also require a 5-year, 6-year, or 12-year inspection or replacement. Learn More
