All employers, landlords or occupiers have a duty under the “Fire Precaution (Workplace) Regulations 1999” and the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 to annually carry out a risk assessment to ensure their premises and activities are able to facilitate safe escape in the event of an emergency.
Emergency lighting is a self-descriptive term. It is of course lighting for an emergency, whether it be caused by fire - when it is essential to quickly locate fire fighting equipment and identify exit routes from the premises, or break in the normal lighting supplies leading to sudden darkness and the resultant hazard to human life, either through physical danger or panic.
Emergency lighting is normally required to operate fully automatically and give illumination of a sufficiently high level to enable persons of all ages to evacuate the premises safely.
