Fire safety in the workplace is important. Make sure you protect your business with staff fire safety training. We’ve outlined the basics you need to know.
Some people describe electrical fires as class E fires. However, in the UK, there’s no official class. This is because most types of fires also involve electrical equipment. If an extinguisher can be used to fight electrical fires, its cylinder will display a lightning bolt.
Water fire extinguishers are the cheapest to buy, replace and refill. And it’s no wonder; the extinguishing agent is hardly costly to buy.
Water fire extinguishers are commonly found in shops, due to the high level of packaging and clothing kept in stock.
However, many other businesses choose to have a water fire extinguisher present in addition to other extinguishers they need; if a Class A fire does break out, it’ll be cheaper to use and replace a water fire extinguisher than it would be to replace a multi-class one.
