Fire Extinguisher Maintenance in the Gold Coast for Your Business

The importance of safety in your business cannot be overstated. The lives of your staff and customers are too valuable to let important safety measures fall to the bottom of your to-do list. A significant component of safety in your business is being proactive in preparing for a fire disaster.

Hopefully, you will never need to use your fire extinguisher. But in the case of an emergency, you need to be confident that the fire extinguisher will work as it is supposed to and extinguish the fire. It is your primary tool against a minor fire to protect your property and the people inside. A small fire can quickly grow by the time fire personnel arrives, which is why a fire extinguisher is an invaluable tool for your Gold Coast business.

The Importance of Fire Extinguisher Testing

Nearly all fire extinguishers work correctly. But mistakes during production can occur, and sometimes defaulted extinguishers are unintentionally sold to the public. Your Gold Coast business can be proactive in safety management with fire extinguisher testing.

Before you can engage in fire extinguisher testing, however, your company needs to be equipped with fire extinguishers. Our company’s wide range of fire equipment services includes the sales of fire extinguishers for your convenience. We can bring the necessary amount of fire extinguishers to your Gold Coast business and test them that day for you. Our fire services meet the needs of a variety of companies in the Gold Coast area, from large industrial organisations to small start-up businesses to commercial businesses. No company is too large or too small for us to service.

The Importance of Fire Extinguisher Maintenance

Once your fire extinguishers have been duly purchased and tested, the next key element for your business’ safety is the maintenance of your fire extinguishers.

According to the Building Fire Safety Regulation 2008, it is mandatory for all fire-fighting equipment to be maintained for the safety of the public. The equipment must also be maintained by a Building Services Authority licensed contractor, and the contractor must work in accordance with the AS 1851 Maintenance of Fire Protection Systems and Equipment. That is a lot of tedious legal words that merely mean your fire equipment needs regular maintenance, and it must be done by a professional.

Checkmate Safety offers fire equipment maintenance services that meet all the government’s requirements while working to provide you with quality customer service. Our staff prioritises giving friendly and personal service that meets your individual business’ needs. We do not see you as just another number to cross off our list. You care about the safety and wellbeing of your unique business, and so do we.

Our Gold Coast fire extinguisher maintenance service is designed to make things as easy as possible for you. We will even schedule and notify you every six months so you can stay up-to-date without worrying about trying to remember this necessary service.
