The vast majority of portable, hand held fire extinguishers are loaded with a dry chemical powder that will extinguish the majority of fires you might encounter in your daily environment. This powder is not toxic but will make you sneeze and cough if you inhale it. (It tastes like sodium bicarbonate which is its base powder.) This powder will extinguish Class "A", "B", and "C" fires.
Class "A" fires involve material such as paper, plastic, wood and other common combustibles.
Class "B" fires involve grease, oil or gasoline. Dry chemical extinguishers will work, but these fires can be harder to extinguish and should be approached with extreme caution.
Class "C" fires involve burning electrical motors or transformer.
At workspace it is difficult to monitor employee hygiene habits, thus it is critical to clean and sanitise commonly touched surfaces regularly.
It is well-known that viruses can spread rapidly on high touch surfaces and on shared objects such as telephones, door handles and sink faucets.
