Emergency Light Testing

An emergency light is a battery backed lighting device that switches on automatically when a building experiences a power outage. Emergency lighting is mandatory and must give adequate lighting in case an emergency arises where the main power supply has been lost. This lighting allows occupants to be able to identify the emergency exits and leave the building safely. The loss of the main lighting in an establishment could be due to a power cut or fire. Emergency lighting systems should be tested periodically and inspected to ensure they are in good working order in case of an evacuation.

Why test?

servicing can be found in BS 5266-1: 2011 (Code of practice for the emergency lighting of premises).

In accordance with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, and the Fire Precautions Workplace

that the system installed is in full working order and follows to BS5266 part 1.
