Do you know all the different fire extinguishers and their purposes?
In Australia there are mainly 6 types of fire extinguishers which can be installed in company premises. These are according to different types of fire. Thus, it is essential that Australian companies have the right type of fire extinguisher installed in their workplace.
Class A: Class A Fire Extinguishers are used for fires that involve carbonaceous solids like paper products, fabrics or textiles, wood-based products, plastics, and rubber-based products.
Class B: Class B extinguishers are used to put out fires that started due to flammable or combustible liquids. In the work environment, this could include chemical-based cleaning products, electrical contact cleaner, and lubricants used for equipment.
Class C: Class C extinguishers are used for fires started by flammable gases. These extinguishers could put out the fire before pressure builds.
Class D: Class D extinguishers are used for fires started by combustible metals – often used in Laboratories
Class E: Class E extinguishers stop electrical fires. This includes events related to electrical equipment that requires electricity or circuit to operate.
Class F: Class F extinguishers manage fires caused by cooking oils and fat based products. They address fires that could occur in a kitchen setting of the workplace.
