Emergency Lighting Maintenance (required annually)
Emergency lighting provides light in an emergency situation when the main power supply is cut and any normal illumination fails. Without emergency lighting severe injuries can happen to those evacuating in darkness. The loss of mains electricity could be the result of a fire or a power cut and the normal lighting supplies fail. A regularly tested and service system will kick in when this happens, helping to assure the safety of your staff.
All emergency lighting systems must be tested monthly. The test is a short functional test in accordance with BS 5266.
The period of simulated failure should be sufficient for the purpose of this test while minimising damage to the system components, e.g. lamps. During this period, all luminaires and signs shall be checked to ensure that they are present, clean and functioning correctly.
