Current Emergency Lighting Standards

Currently, the main standard for emergency lighting systems is BS 5266-1:2016, which sets out the requirements for emergency escape lighting systems in the United Kingdom. The standard applies to all types of commercial, industrial, and residential buildings. It covers the design, installation, commissioning, maintenance, and testing of emergency lighting systems. The standard also specifies the minimum levels of illumination required in emergency escape routes and open areas and the duration of illumination.

It also states that emergency lighting systems should be tested and maintained at least once a year to ensure they are in proper working order and compliant with regulations. Building owners and managers are responsible for ensuring compliance with the standard and keeping testing and maintenance records. “Improve with us.”

How to test

Emergency Lights?

Testing emergency lights is crucial in ensuring that they will function properly in an emergency. A brief guide on how to test emergency lights would include the following steps:

Identify the emergency

Locate all emergency lights in the building, including exit signs, emergency lights, and other emergency lighting fixtures. Make sure to test all lights, including those that are battery-operated and those that are connected to the building’s electrical system.

Test the lights

Turn off the normal lighting and test each emergency light individually by activating the test switch or button. Make sure that each light turns on and is at the correct illumination level.

Check the duration of illumination

Check that the emergency lights stay on for at least the minimum duration required by the standard (BS 5266-1:2016)

Check the battery backup

Check that the battery backup for each emergency light is working properly and that it provides the required level of illumination for the required duration.

Document the results

Document the results of the test, including the date, the lights that were tested, and any issues or problems that were found.

Schedule regular tests

Schedule regular tests at least once a year and keep records of all testing and maintenance.

It is important to note that our qualified person should carry out the testing because we are competent in emergency lighting. “Just Upgrade today!”

Why are Emergency Lighting certificates important?

Legal Compliance

Emergency lighting systems are required by law to be installed and maintained in commercial, industrial, and public buildings. The certificates prove that the emergency lighting system has been installed and maintained to the necessary standards and is in proper working order. It ensures that the building complies with relevant laws and regulations, and helps protect the building’s occupants in the event of an emergency.

Insurance

Having emergency lighting certificates can also help to protect a building’s owners and occupants from liability in the event of an emergency. Insurance companies may require evidence of proper emergency lighting maintenance in order to provide coverage for a building, and the certificates can serve as proof of compliance with these requirements.

Preventing Accidents

Properly maintained emergency lighting systems can help to prevent accidents and injuries by providing clear and reliable lighting for occupants to evacuate the building in case of emergency. It is especially important in large buildings where the power may be cut off during emergencies, making it difficult for occupants to find their way out.

Continuous Monitoring

Emergency lighting certificates also serve as a way to ensure that the emergency lighting system is continuously monitored and maintained. The certificate includes a schedule for regular testing and maintenance, which helps to ensure that the system is always in proper working order.
