Having emergency lighting in your school, hospital, or other building is not enough. It is essential to routinely and inspect and test it and make any necessary repairs quickly to ensure that it is functioning properly so that you will be prepared in the event of an emergency.
According to law, emergency lighting equipment must be inspected and tested on a monthly basis, and the results must be recorded. If you operate a large facility, testing and maintaining the amount of emergency lighting equipment in your building could be overwhelming to your maintenance staff, who also have many other responsibilities.
Even if you have a large staff with enough time to do the job, they probably do not have the expertise to maintain your emergency lighting system. Most buildings are equipped with emergency lighting equipment from several manufacturers that has different types of batteries, lamps, chargers, and other parts. This can be confusing to staff who are not properly trained and can lead to mistakes that could result in lost lives in the event of an emergency.
