The Emergency Exit Light Testing Standard defines the essential periodic inspection and maintenance procedures that are imperative to guarantee that emergency evacuation lighting systems remain consistently prepared for operation under all circumstances.
The Standard applies to both central and single-point emergency lighting systems, mandating that all emergency evacuation lighting systems undergo inspection and maintenance in strict accordance with the specified procedures outlined in the Standard. Furthermore, it stipulates that the task of inspecting and maintaining these systems should be entrusted solely to individuals possessing the requisite qualifications and experience appropriate for this specialised work.
To uphold the integrity of the inspection and maintenance process, the Standard necessitates that all maintenance records be documented in hard copy record tags or log books. Additionally, electronic copies of these records may be employed to ensure a comprehensive and reliable record-keeping system. This approach reinforces the commitment to safety and compliance in emergency lighting systems.
