  • OSHA Fire Extinguisher Requirements: Extinguishers must receive an annual maintenance check once per year by a certified technician.
  • Every six years, your extinguishers must be taken apart and internally inspected by a certified technician.
  • Every twelve years, your extinguisher must be hydrostatic pressure tested to ensure integrity of the vessel and prevent flaws which could result in an extinguisher exploding.
  • Fire extinguishers are not play things. Even a slight discharge could result in a pressure leak that will make an extinguisher unusable.

D.O.T. Hydrostatic Requirements

  • Hydrostatic testing is a nondestructive test required by the Department of Transportation to ensure the integrity of pressurized cylinders.
  • Many types of cylinders require testing once every five years, while others require testing once every twelve years.
