Emergency Lighting in Swindon
Emergency lighting is first and foremost intended to provide sufficient light to enable people to see their way safely out of a building in case of emergency.
It is crucial that the emergency lighting comes into play if the normal lighting fails. Emergency lighting needs to be correctly positioned, bright enough and illuminated for sufficient time to enable the occupants of a building to evacuate safely in an emergency.
Emergency lighting requirements specify that lights are positioned:
Along escape routes
At every change in direction
Adjacent to any step or trip hazard
Over every flight of stairs so each tread receives direct light
Close to fire fighting equipment and call points
Close to any first aid points
Outside every final exit.
It is recommended that external lighting is provided to guide evacuees away from the final exits.
It is important that regular testing of emergency lighting is carried out and that this testing be evidenced should it ever be required by HSE (Health and Safety Executive).
