Contact Routine Emergency Lighting Testing And Maintenance It is important that equipment is properly tested and maintained if it is to function correctly when required in an emergency. The following testing is designed to ensure the continued protection of your premises and occupants; because of the possibility of a failure of the normal lighting supply occurring shortly after a period of testing, all tests should wherever possible, be undertaken at time of least risk. The results of all testing and any necessary corrective action should be recorded in a log record held on site, which shall be available if required for inspection by any authorised person. All documents should be filled in on a test record BS Daily Visually check that all maintained lamps are operating and that all system healthy indicators on Central Power Supply Systems Central Battery Systems are illuminated. Check that any system fault recorded is given urgent attention and record all corrective actions in the log book provided.

The installation shall ensure that emergency escape lighting fulfils the following functions: a b c d to illuminate escape route signs. An exit or directional sign shall be in view at all points along the escape route. Full details of levels and measurement of illuminance and adaptation are specified in EN and EN NOTE Maintained exit signs should be considered for applications where occupants may be unfamiliar with the building.
All signs marking exits and escape routes shall be uniform in colour and format. The illumination by the emergency escape lighting system of a compartment of the escape route shall be from two or more luminaires so that the failure of one luminaire does not plunge the route into total darkness or make the directional finding effect of the system ineffective.

The drawings shall be made in accordance with Subclause They shall be selected to be appropriate for their location. NOTE If used in areas with risk of explosion. For all other systems. Regular servicing is essential. The regulating authority may require specific tests.
NOTE 2 An appropriate print out of data from an automatic testing device meets the requirements of this clause.

These shall be available as either a manual record or as a hard copy obtained from an automatic testing device.
This person shall be given sufficient authority to ensure the carrying out of any work necessary to maintain the system in correct operation. The log book shall be used to record at least the following information: a b c d e f date of commissioning of the system including any certificate relating to alterations.
Details of replacement components of luminaires such as lamp type. NOTE 1 The logbook may also include pages relating to other safety records. NOTE This is a visual inspection of indicators to identify that the system is in a ready condition and does not require a test of operation.
