Emergency lights are more important than you think. Power outages will likely occur at your facility a number of times in a given year – it’s inevitable. The key to ensuring the best possible outcome from power outages is making sure that you have an emergency plan in place to prevent injury or death. Neglecting to get your emergency lights tested and inspected puts you at increased risk of fines for code noncompliance, preventable injuries and resulting lawsuits. This means that you need to employ an emergency lights service provider that can give the most comprehensive emergency light testing in Australia.
The Importance of Emergency Lights
To ensure compliance with OHS/WHS obligations, employers have a legal ‘Duty of Care’ to ensure that emergency and exit lights work adequately. This means that in a power outage, or other emergency, people can quickly exit their way out of the building, without hurting themselves. Without these precautionary measures your employees, or really anyone on the premises, could possible sustain injuries, damages, and in the worst case, death.
The best way to prevent any negligence on your part is to hire a professional emergency lights service provider than can offer you regular emergency light testing to the Australian Standard: 2293. Ensure that your lights are inspected every 6 months and that the technician provides evidence in the relevant log book. If you have trouble remembering getting your emergency lights tested, try combining the inspection with other electrical testing so that everything is adequately maintained.
