Emergency Lighting Testing

An Emergency Light is a vital part of any installation when it comes to an emergency situation.

AS 2293.3:1995 sets out the periodic inspection and maintenance procedures which are necessary to ensure that emergency evacuation lighting systems will be in a state of readiness for operation at all times.

The standard instructs that all single point emergency fittings must be tested as per the Standard at 6 and 12 month intervals.

At Insight we have simplified this Standard to the following steps:

  • Visual checks of all emergency and exit lights in mains operation.
  • Check for operation of maintained exit lights and replace faulty lamps where required.
  • Where manual discharge test facility is present, operate the test switch and/or circuit breaker to simulate a power failure.
  • The emergency lighting system shall remain illuminated for not less than 90 minutes.
  • Restore the emergency and exit lights to normal charging condition.
  • Check operation of all maintained exit lights and all charge indicators.
  • Report any failures and record data in on site manuals.
  • Record data in electronic format for OH&S auditing processes.
