The owner or responsible person within the premises is responsible for a number of actions and tests in respect to the building’s emergency lighting system, to ensure compliance under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order.
Emergency lighting systems should be inspected / tested at regular intervals. It is recommended for different checks to be performed monthly and annually.
All emergency lighting systems should be tested monthly. This is a short functional test in accordance with BS 5266–1:2016. The duration of the test should be sufficient to ensure that the luminaire operates correctly, whilst minimising any damage to the system components, e.g. Lamps, Battery.
The annual test should be a full rated duration test to ensure that the emergency lights are still working and producing the acceptable level of light at the end of the test. This test must be carried out by a competent person.
Our team of electricians attend regular CPD certified training sessions to ensure we remain up to date with any changes in the industry.
Once testing is complete we issue a report which will incorporate any malfunctions or recommendations of remedial work required.
