WAC 296-800-30005

Provide portable fire extinguishers in your workplace.

You must:
(1) Provide approved portable fire extinguishers for your workplace and distribute them so they are readily accessible
• Make sure that your portable fire extinguisher does not use extinguishing agents such as carbon tetrachloride or chlorobromomethane extinguishing agents. In addition, soda-acid foam, loaded stream, antifreeze and water extinguishers of the inverting type shall not be recharged or placed into service.
(2) Mount, locate, and identify portable fire extinguishers so employees can easily reach them, without being subjected to possible injury.
