Are you aware the regulations surrounding the maintenance and monitoring of emergency lighting changed in 2016?


All businesses are required to be compliant with this legislation. HSE issued this update to the regulations in 2016, its BS 5266:1-2016

The need for emergency lighting regulations is an obvious one, it ensures that your emergency lighting will work when required and protects everyone who uses your buildings/sites etc. providing a clear and safe route out of the building.

If your emergency lights fail in a time of need then the consequences could be quite severe, as the tragedy at Grenfell Towers taught us. HSE have issued fines already to business found not be compliant and these range from £10k up to £200k

For Schools we have been advised that Ofsted will also be reviewing and reporting on emergency lighting.

As part of your compliance inspection you may be asked to provide the following documentation:

  • Emergency lighting risk assessment
  • Drawings for all areas including “points of emphasis” which includes exit points, lights, fire extinguishers, fire blanket, break glass units, defibrillators etc.
  • Test schedule (monthly tests by competent trained professional)
  • Proof of annual battery discharge
  • Luxe plots – showing the light levels for all the routes to muster points

Can you provide all of the above?

No, then give us a call (01491 637377) or email (, we can help.

We have teamed up with one of our partners, who will visit the site to review your current set up and provide feedback and a solution if you not currently meeting the required regulations.

Our partner has an emergency light system provided by Clevertronics which provides remote access to the lights providing both monitoring and failure detection. Providing you with peace of mind and giving your the reports to show your compliance.

You can also pair this with our partners Light as a Service, which provides a route to upgrading your lighting to LED and your emergency lights through a monthly subscription charge.
