landlord safety advantages
Emergency lighting is primarily used to help people escape from a building in the event of fire or other emergencies. It can also be used to illuminate safety equipment. Emergency lights are essential in office or apartment blocks or any other buildings in which a loss of normal lighting would significantly hinder escape. Every Building owner should possess an emergency lighting certificate.
Single ‘stand-alone’ escape lighting units may be sufficient in small premises and these can sometimes be combined with exit or directional signs. In larger more complex premises a more comprehensive system of fixed automatic escape lighting is likely to be needed. This will be particularly true in premises with extensive basements or where there are significant numbers of staff or members of the public.
Landlord Safety Certificate can install new emergency lights and carry out regular emergency lighting testing. Testing involves, among other things, making sure that the lighting tubes illuminate properly and that the backup battery lasts long enough to allow the building to be fully evacuated. If any problems are found during a routine test, we will resolve them and all problems will be noted in a log book. Tests should be conducted once a month.
