No matter what commercial premises you visit, you will always see emergency lighting in place. This is for two main reasons, the first is the health and safety of all personnel within the premises and the second is the law. All commercial premises must have emergency lighting in place to protect both the staff and customers in case of an emergency. If a fire breaks out in a building, then it is crucial that everyone knows where the exits are immediately so they can get to safety in a calm and orderly fashion. There must be multiple exits within a commercial building for this exact reason so as a panic doesn’t occur, and everyone rushes towards the one exit. This is where casualties are inevitably going to happen. There is no point in having multiple exits in a building however if nobody knows where they are. The exits must be clearly signed and visible, especially in the case of an emergency such as a fire or a power outage. This is why it is so important to hire a competent electrician to install your emergency lighting. There’s no point on having emergency lighting in place such as emergency exit signs, if they cut out when all the other power cuts out. Sometimes these signs seem to be working fine on a day to day basis, but if they cut out during an emergency then you are in big trouble.
Types of Commercial Properties
From a business point of view, it is also a major benefit having emergency lighting in place if something were to go wrong. If you were in the middle of a really important job and the power cuts, having emergency lighting in place to keep you tipping over until the problem is resolved. This could be the difference in making or breaking your business. The types of business we cater fore here at Electrician Eastbourne include Caffe’s, Pubs, Restaurants, Nightclubs, Hotels, Gyms, Factories, Office Buildings, Cinemas, Stadiums and much, much more.
Having emergency exit signs in place for first responders is extremely important also. In the case of an emergency, whether there is a power outage or not, the first responders need to be able to enter and exit the building in the quickest possible way in order to help the injured party. If it is a poorly lit room such as a nightclub or cinema, this adds to the problem. The first responders need to act fast to save lives and every second saved is so important in the case of an emergency. Having emergency exit signs in place and working correctly is vital.
Health and Safety
Having emergency exit lighting in place in the correct area is so crucial from a health and safety standpoint but also to be in accordance with the law. If an accident were to occur such as a fire and the emergency lighting failed, then this could cause massive panic and cause a massive amount of additional, and completely avoidable damage to both people and property. If it were found that you didn’t have emergency lighting in place in the case of an emergency then there would be lawsuits involved, and a lot of questions by both the police and your insurance company which you would have to answer for.
