If you are not 100% sure you have an emergency lighting system, or if it isn’t working, then you need to get it checked.
What is emergency lighting?
In the event that usual power supply to lighting fails, there will be additional lighting which will illuminate, allowing an efficient evacuation from a premise. As a result:
- Occupants will feel safer during an evacuation.
- Emergency services will be more effective with this type of lighting.
- UFSS also provide extensive lighting and fire safety signage for added clarity in the event of an emergency.
What are the problems if lighting for emergencies isn’t installed or has not been correctly installed?
- Occupants are at a greater risk of injury.
- Prosecution, fines and imprisonment.
- Occupants will be unsure of exits causing fear.
- Different work areas require different lighting requirements. Making it essential each room is compliant.
