In this blog post, we cover the basics behind Emergency Lighting and who is responsible for it!

Emergency Lighting For Offices

First up - What is Emergency Lighting?

It's a critical life safety system that will help your staff and visitors to evacuate your building to a place of safety in an emergency.

When your regular power supply drops out during a fire, or even a power cut, the normal lighting fails. This can obviously lead to sudden darkness and a potential risk to occupants, either through physical danger or sheer panic.

Emergency Lighting illuminates escape routes and safety equipment, making it safer and easier for your staff and visitors to navigate the building when the standard lighting fails.

Who is responsible for Emergency Lighting?

If you're the Responsible Person, you must carry out a fire risk assessment and make note of any potential hazards.

It's your responsibility to reduce these hazards within the workplace, which includes the installation and maintenance of life safety systems, such as Emergency Lighting.

So, if you're the Responsible Person, you need to read our guide to balancing budget and fire safety. Click the image below.
