Emergency Lighting - Why it is Critical



When identifying different levels of risk and the assessing potential hazards, emergency lighting must be positioned to clearly highlight the nature and location of such threats.


In any case of an emergency, it is absolutely crucial that you are able to ensure a safe exit for all occupants present in your commercial premises.


Emergency lights have and always will play an important role in ensuring that this is possible.


Having the correct emergency lighting and determining that it meets British Standards, in the right place is crucial to ensuring the safe evacuation of your staff in the event of an emergency such as a fire or explosion.


Having it routinely checked and tested, by qualified, competent professionals, is similarly important.


When the unthinkable happens, and your premises experiences a real life emergency – and the lighting drops – there will be an immediate increase in danger due to lack of visibility therefore compromising the ability of occupants to safely navigate corridors.


Alongside genuine safety concerns, failing to have any back-up source of lighting to safely guide occupants will in turn lead to heightened fear, anxiety, and uncertainty. It is therefore critical that a back-up lighting solution is consistently available and readily fit for purpose.
