Choosing the right fire extinguisher | Health and Safety News
From healthsafety.jigsy.com - March 15, 11:20 AM

Sole trader sentenced for tipper death failings
From www.hse.gov.uk - March 15, 11:18 AM

“ It’s important to know that multi- class fire extinguishers will have a separate fire rating for each class of fire it tackles. This is because it won’t be as effective against one type as fire as it is against another.” Marcus 's insight: Classes of fire A fire’s class tells you what is being burned. Your risk assessment should identify types of combustible materials that are present in a given area. Class A: Ordinary combustibles (wood, paper, cloth, rubber, plastics) Class B: Flammable liquids (oil, petrol, gasoline greases) Class C: Flammable gases (gas, propane, hydrogen) Class D: Combustible metals (magnesium, titanium, etc.) Class F: Cooking fats, oils and electrical equipment
