EMERGENCY LIGHTING INSTALLATION & SERVICING 

BS 5226-1 requires that emergency lighting is provided in offices, pubs, clubs, shops, hotels, nursing homes, schools, colleges, multi-storey buildings and many more similar property types and uses. The purpose of emergency lighting is to ensure that safety lighting is provided promptly, automatically and for a suitable time to enable safe exit from a location and/or if the normal mains power supply to the usual lighting installation fails. 
 
It goes without saying that servicing and maintenance of emergency lighting systems is carried out at regular intervals to ensure that the system remains in a fully operational condition. It is advisable to have in place a service and maintenance contract with a competent person or company, not only for routine inspection, but also for emergency repairs and alterations.

FIRE DETECTION AND ALARM SYSTEMS 

There are many different types of fire detection and alarm system. The choice of fire alarm system will depend on the building structure, the purpose and use of the building and current legislation. Guidance for the installation and servicing of fire alarm systems can be found in the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, BS 5839-1 and BS5839-6. As part of this legislation fire alarm systems must be regularly serviced and maintained by a competent person to ensure they are in good working order and remain 'on watch' at all times, ready to activate the alarm sounders in response to a signal from an automatic detector or manual call point.  
 
Fire alarm systems should be visually inspected and routinely tested by the user or a trained member of staff, who should ensure that all events relating to the system are properly recorded in the Fire Detection and Alarm System Log Book. The Log book should be kept in a safe place and must be readily available for inspection by a Fire Officer or other authorised person.

ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION CONDITION REPORTS 

All electrical equipment deteriorates with age, as well as wear and tear from use. Every electrical installation should be inspected and tested at appropriate intervals during its lifetime to establish that its condition is such that, subject to the completion of any necessary remedial work, the installation is safe to remain in service until at least the next inspection is due. 
 
The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 places legal implications on employers to ensure the safety of electrical systems and equipment used in the working environment. This legislation also includes rented households, HMO’s and residential care homes. The easiest and most cost effective way to check your electrical installation is safe is to a have a periodic electrical inspection carried out by a competent person or company as this will give you a detailed report on the condition of your installation. 
 
The recommended initial frequencies of periodic inspections and testing for typical installation types are provided below for your guidance: 
 
• Private households – Change of occupancy / every 10 years 
• Rented households including HMO’s – Change of occupancy / every 5 years 
• Residential care homes - Change of occupancy / every 5 years 
• Educational establishments, offices, shops and similar - every 5 years
