Equipment Selection Process

TasFire Equipment rigorously assesses the equipment that
we sell. As an arm of the Tasmania Fire Service, TasFire Equipment
is committed to providing only quality products at competitive
prices. A panel of TasFire Equipment staff select the individual
items that we will sell on a quality vs value basis.

Workplace Health and Safety (WH&S)

TasFire Equipment operate under the WH&S policies of the
(TFS) and the broader Department of Police, Fire and Emergency
management (DPFEM). All staff receive WH&S training, follow
established hazard and incident reporting processes and work
under Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS) for all work conducted.

Insurances

The Tasmania Fire Service holds adequate insurance policies covering
Public and Products Liability, Motor Vehicle and Workers Compensation.

Environment

TasFire Equipment is committed to minimising the impact on the
environment. Fire extinguisher recycling programs are in place to
recycle all the components and fire-fighting chemicals in accordance
with environmental requirements. TasFire Equipment is also a
collection point for BCF (Halon) type extinguishers which are returned
to the National Halon Bank for appropriate storage.
