Would anyone happen to have training on how to read a fire extinguisher inspection tag? I'm looking for some sort of cheat sheet type of document to give to our supervisors. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Read the tag? The inspection tag should be for them to fill out, not read, right? Maybe you can tell us what type of business you're in and why they are reading the tag?
Usually monthly inspections to ensure the unit is pointing in the green and the pin is still secured, the whole unit is in it's proper hanger, and the punch out dates of the last annual inspection has not exceeded 12 months?. Then the person checking the unit, initials and dates the back of the tag.
The company that is on the inspection tag would be the best source to answer your questions. As for the comment above I agree with them 100%. You should have a company hired to do an annual inspection of the extinguishers and then typically on the back of the tag is a spot to initial and date for a monthly inspection that a designated employee should be responsible for checking.
I believe the question should be something like having a checklist to go by in order to fill out the tag. 2018 NFPA 10 Section 7.2.2 Inspection Procedures gives you 7 steps. Anything that seems odd or a violation based on this list should be called to the attention of your fire extinguisher service contractor.
