Emergency Lighting

 Are you compliant?

Emergency Lighting is needed in the event of normal lighting supply failure or in the event of a fire to show escape routes lighting the way up including if necessary Panic Bars and Pads from buildings by use of both exit signs and luminaires on the route acting as beacons to a place of safety. Also to be able to see and operate Fire Safety Equipment as needed for example Manual Call Points, Fire Indication Equipment and Extinguishers. There is also now an inclusion to highlight for example High Risk Areas and First Aid Posts to permit operations concerned with safety measures.

Minimum Emergency Lighting levels have been increased to aid the means of escape to be safe and effectively used so activities, in particular work in hazardous workplaces can be safely terminated and emergency actions can be effectively carried out at appropriate locations in the workplace

The Regulatory Reform Order puts the responsibility of fire safety with the Directors of businesses and building operators, to ensure that adequate testing is carried out and test records maintained.

Guidelines of the appropriate tests are provided in British and European Standards BS5266 and EN 50172 and it is a requirement that all emergency lighting systems are serviced by a competent person a minimum of 2 visits per year unless your risk assessment states otherwise which is some cases such as schools or care homes this can be 4 times per annum.
