Why it’s important to carry out yearly inspections on your emergency lighting
Emergency lighting provides lighting for an emergency situation when the main power supply is cut and any normal illumination fails. The loss of mains electricity throughout a site could be the result of a fire or a power cut and the normal lighting supplies fail. This may lead to sudden darkness and a possible danger to the occupants within the premises.
Emergency lighting is normally required to operate fully automatically and give illumination of a sufficiently high level to enable all occupants to evacuate the premises safely. Most new buildings now have emergency lighting installed during construction; the design and type of equipment being specified by the architect in accordance with current Building Regulations and any local authority requirements.
This is why monthly and periodic testing is vital to ensure sufficient backup battery load on all emergency lighting.
According to the Health and Safety Executive, there are approximately 1,000 major electrical related injuries reported each year. These can involve burns and electrical shocks and of these injuries around 30 of them are fatal.
All Security Solutions provide routine PAT testing in Essex and London to ensure that all electrical appliances are safe and to ensure that defects are removed to prevent any electrical accidents.
