Emergency Lighting ensures that your building is safe and complies to British Standards BS 5266.
As with any safety regulation, emergency lighting regulations are in place for good reasons. Business owners worry about a lot of things, and the safety of employees should always come first. You have a moral, and also legal obligation to provide a safe work environment.
UK law demands the fitting of all occupied buildings with adequate escape lighting, so they allow safe exit in cases when the mains power fails.
Industries across the spectrum still feel the shockwaves of high profile incidents, due to inadequate safety systems. It’s a sobering reminder of the vital importance of emergency lighting for any organisation. Put bluntly, it’s a measure that can save lives.
Following these incidents, the Government set about reinforcing recommendations for all organisations. This ensures emergency lighting systems are both fully functional, and also maintains them in accordance with the relevant British Standards. Namely BS 5266.
