Could you be breaking the law?
You may not realise you are?
Are you meeting the required standards for Emergency Lighting? If the answer is ‘i'm not sure or I don’t know. Don’t leave it as you may be at risk.
If you have made changes to areas within your building over the last few years you may no longer be compliant.
If you have had a recent upgrade or refurbishment, The latest Standards BS5266 1:2016 released May 2016 will now require an increase of the Emergency Light output to 1 lux.
If unsure a fire risk assessment would be a good place to start. Are areas that require emergency lighting including corridors and escape routes covered.
Are you testing your Emergency Lighting correctly? A Function test or Flick test will need to be carried out every month. A full rated duration test of 3 hours annually by isolating the area to be tested to force all Emergency Luminaires into a test. All failures should be inputted into the emergency log book and a programme of works put in place to rectify immediately.
