Emergency lighting is designed to help occupants see their way to safety in the event of a mains power failure. If the emergency lighting fails to function properly, then lives could be put at risk and organisations held responsible.
To prevent this from happening, the Fire Safety Order places a mandatory obligation on building occupiers to carry out regular testing and inspection of their emergency lighting system in accordance with the requirements of BS 5266.
How often should you test emergency lighting? Short emergency lighting testing is required monthly to ensure that the lights activate correctly in the event of a mains failure and return to charge correctly once power is restored. In addition, a yearly test of emergency lighting is required.
