7 Emergency Lighting Regulations Resources For The Busy Business Owner

Date: 21 August 2017

The last thing any business owner wants to do is browse the web for hours on end trying to find and make sense of Emergency Lighting regulations.

You've got important tasks to do and deadlines to meet. Why can't everything you need be in one place?!

The vague and confusing language makes the experience mind numbing. But, what's worse is being directed to 100+ page PDFs and not knowing which parts you actually need to read!

Sadly, if you don't endure the pain and investigate the rules and the worst happens, you could end up with unlimited fines or even a prison sentence.

Fortunately, Blake's have come to the rescue!

We've put some of the most important resources together for you, so you can spend more time focusing on the important stuff, and less time cursing at the computer screen...

Emergency Lighting Regulations

Helpful Emergency Lighting resources, to save you time

Here's a list of resources you can use to understand Emergency Lighting regulations:

Choosing a suitable contractor

And, passing this on to your trusted local electrician is an equally bad move. The average electrician or fireman is unlikely to be BAFE or NSI Gold accredited for the design and installation of fire safety systems.

And that only means one thing - a mistake will be made somewhere down the line. Whether it's:

  • The system failing you during a time of need due to improper maintenance
  • The signage not positioned correctly in accordance with legislation
  • The wrong piece of equipment being used in the wrong place

Ask yourself - is saving a bit of money worth risking the lives of your visitors and staff and potentially going to jail?

Some businesses can last decades with a fire safety system that doesn't meet legislation, but they don't realise they need a better one until the worst happens - and it's too late.

If you're wincing at the thought of a prison sentence, you need to contact an accredited, approved contractor who is familiar with the law and has extensive experience under their belt. Then, you can be certain the job will be done properly... aaaah, peace of mind!

Balancing budget and fire safety
