CMS Electrical Contractors design and install emergency lighting to BS 5266-1:2005 (the emergency lighting code of practice for emergency lights in property). We also offer agreements for the testing and advice that will help you conform to the responsibilities for the emergency lights.

Emergency lights are essential for the safety of building occupants. It’s critical the lighting comes on if the regular lighting fails. It should be sufficiently bright, illuminated for a sufficient length of time and the light sources guaranteed to work.

Routine Testing really should be performed by properly trained staff members and a competent person:

• Daily – visual check to ensure that emergency lighting systems are operating correctly and that indicators are operating. This can be achieved by the ‘responsible person’ assigned to the task by the organisation/business. Any defects should be recorded and remedied ASAP.

• Monthly – Check all luminaires for signs and symptoms of damage or disrepair. Briefly test out all emergency lights to make certain that they operate in the event of mains electricity supply failure. This will ordinarily be carried out by the ‘responsible person’. Any problems should be recorded and repaired immediately.

• Annually – An entire system assessment and duration test of the emergency lights must be achieved by a ‘competent person‘, this being a person with the required skills, training and knowledge to execute emergency lighting routine maintenance and servicing. Conformity with BS5266 should be considered and produced in the emergency lighting certification document. Any faults must be fixed. CMS Electrical engineers are qualified and experienced in the routine assessment and tests of emergency lighting systems.
