Emergency Lighting Testing
WHY DO I NEED TO CARRY IT OUT?
The Fire Precautions (workplace) Regulations 1997 state that “Emergency routes and exits requiring illumination must be provided with emergency lighting of adequate intensity in case lighting fails”.
All emergency lighting systems should now be installed, tested and inspected in accordance with BS5266-1.

WHAT DOES IT INVOLVE?
WHO SHOULD DO THE WORK?
WILL IT IMPACT ON MY WORKPLACE?
WHAT WILL I RECEIVE?
Upon completion of emergency lighting test and inspection you should receive a report that details the following:
If you are not a technical person, then your contractor should be pleased to talk through your report with you and advise you of any further action required. Your contractor should enter the details of the inspection in your on-site log-book.
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?
There are many factors that can affect the cost of emergency lighting test and inspection such as location, type of installation, size of building(s), access and availability of previous records. As a rule of thumb, your contractor should attend site prior to quoting to survey the building(s) in order to establish all of the necessary details, you should be wary of accepting a quotation unless a full survey has been conducted or you are sure you have provided enough information.
WHAT COULD HAPPEN IF I DON’T DO IT?
There are many reasons not to do emergency lighting test and inspection such as cost, inconvenience, or lack of knowledge. However none of these reasons will be accepted as a defence in the event that loss of power supply occurs and safe evacuation is not possible. Aside from the threat of prosecution in the event of fire, injury or death, surely the safety of your colleagues, employees, patients or belongings are reason enough to test and inspect emergency lighting systems at work.
