for Portable Fire
2007 Edition - $40.95
Portable fire extinguishers are
an important first line of defense against small fires.
Improve fire protection with
proper selection and maintenance of portable fire
For maximum protection, be
sure to select and maintain equipment using the provisions in
NFPA 10: Standard for Portable Fire Extinguishers.
This document covers equipment
distribution, placement, maintenance, operation, and
inspection - as well as testing and recharging.
Look to the 2007 NFPA 10 for
current provisions that impact safety:
- In lieu of 30-day monthly
inspections, electronic monitoring is now permitted for
most applications, and expanded material covers the topic
- For the first time, NFPA 10
requires certification for technicians servicing
extinguishers. Annex material provides details about
acceptable certification programs.
- New list of obsolete
extinguishers. Be sure to check the up-to-date list and
remove problem equipment from service.
Trust the industry's most
widely accepted requirements in NFPA 10--the Standard used by
OSHA to develop its workplace training regulations.
Servicers, facility managers
and owners, and technicians can depend on the 2007 edition to
make sure extinguishers are up to the job. (Softbound, Approx.
