If you’re looking to install, upgrade or replace your emergency lighting, we’ve got everything you need to know to make sure you’re following all the necessary UK health and safety guidelines.
Emergency lighting, otherwise known as safety or anti-panic lighting, provides light for people to safely evacuate the area when a blackout occurs in public or private buildings, indoor car parks etc.
Another form of emergency lighting is replacement lighting. In the event of a power failure, replacement lighting kicks in and sheds enough light to allow delicate work to be terminated safely - this is vital for workplaces such as laboratories where there is a risk of severe injury or death due to exposure to chemicals and toxins.
Emergency lighting isn’t just there to tick a health and safety box - it’s there to save lives.
