Emergency Escape Lighting and exit signs
As a business owner or manager it is your obligation to ensure that you comply with Emergency Inspection and maintenance as per Australian Standards. These Standards are critical in ensuring the safety of workers and visitors in the event of a fire or emergency.
The Australian Standards cover an array of regulations that must be adhered to. Switched On Lighting and Electrical specialises in helping businesses keep up with legal obligations and ensure the safety of occupants.
The Standard specifies requirements for the design and installation of emergency escape lighting and illuminated emergency exit signage systems for buildings.
- A switch shall be provided to permit the operation of each emergency escape luminaire or exit sign to be checked by simulating a supply circuit failure.
- At any time during the life of an installation, the duration of satisfactory operation on emergency power of every emergency escape luminaire or exit sign shall be not less than 90min except where applicable building regulations specify a shorter minimum period. Therefore a 6 monthly Emergency Escape Lighting and Exit sign test must be conducted according to the Standards
