Do you have emergency lighting? If so, it is vital to check that they are in working order. In the event of an emergency, it is the responsibility of every company to provide fully functioning emergency lighting.
However, recent reports have revealed that a private landlord has failed to do so, resulting in a fine of a record £400,000 over the lack of emergency lighting. The building in question failed to display a number of key health and safety requirements including; no emergency lighting in communal areas, broken lights and risks of electrocution due to poor lighting. It has been described as one of the biggest financial penalties ever handed out to a landlord in Britain.
What’s more, with recent reports from Ofgem and The National Grid suggesting an increasing risk of power cuts, it is more critical than ever for building owners and operators to ensure their emergency lighting is compliant with current regulations.
