Emergency Light Testing

We are available for extensive emergency light testing services that help clients to ensure that all emergency signs and lights are in full working order around the clock.

What is Emergency Light Testing?

Here at UK Safety Management, we perform emergency light testing to examine the operational capability and effectiveness of your building’s emergency lighting systems. These lighting systems are pivotal during emergencies such as power outages or fires, as they provide the necessary illumination to guide occupants to safety. Our testing process ensures these systems meet all safety standards and are primed for use when required. We’re also able to train your employees in how to perform regular checks and monthly tests.

How Does Emergency Light Testing Work?

Our expert engineers conduct Emergency Light Testing through a comprehensive series of checks. These include assessing the condition of your emergency lights, replacing or charging batteries as required, and recording all the relevant details in your internal testing logbooks. If we identify any issues, we’ll highlight them and suggest appropriate solutions. Once we’ve finished, we will issue an emergency lighting certificate to affirm your compliance with the necessary regulations.

Is Emergency Light Testing a Legal Requirement?

Indeed, emergency light testing is a legal requirement in the UK. As per the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, regular inspections and tests of emergency lighting systems must be performed by a competent party. As approved contractors, we’re well-equipped to help you meet these legal requirements. Our team is more than happy to go through the specifics concerning the legal requirements surrounding emergency light testing in various sites.

What are the Benefits of Emergency Light Testing?

The primary benefit of emergency light testing is ensuring the safety of everyone in your building during emergencies. By providing the necessary lighting, occupants can safely exit the building during power failures. Additionally, regular testing allows for early detection of potential issues, ensuring timely rectification and compliance with safety regulations. By staying on top of emergency light testing, you can avoid paying out for costly repairs in the future.

How Much Does Emergency Light Testing Cost?

The cost of emergency light testing can vary based on multiple factors, including the size of your premises, the number of emergency lights to be tested, and the frequency of testing. At UK Safety Management, we recommend getting a bespoke quote from our team for an accurate estimate tailored to your specific needs. You can rely on our staff to come up with a testing solution that is suitable for both your budget and schedule. We pride ourselves on having affordable emergency light testing solutions for every client.

How Often Should I Have Emergency Light Testing Carried Out?

At UK Safety Management, we adhere to the guidelines set out in BS 5266–1:2016. This means we conduct a short functional test of your emergency lighting systems monthly and a full-rated duration test annually. These tests ensure your emergency lights remain fully functional and capable of providing necessary illumination during emergencies. Please note specific testing frequency may also depend on the regulations pertaining to your particular industry or locale.
