It is crucial to have emergency lighting clear and visible within your business. As a commercial business owner, it is your responsibility to ensure the health and safety of both your customers and your employees. Everyone wants things to run smoothly in a business, but we all know that isn’t always the case. Sometimes things go wrong and there must be contingency plans in place when they do. If you enter into a cinema, pub, or restaurant, you will notice the big green illumines emergency exit signs around the premises. These are in place for such circumstances.
If for some reason the power cuts out or the fire alarm goes off, it is important to get people out of the premises as safely and as quickly as possible. This is why there is emergency exits in all commercial buildings, but there is no point in having these exits if people don’t know where they are. People don’t know when they are going to need things such as fire alarms, or evacuations but when they happen there can be panic and hysteria around if there is a real emergency. With adequate lighting over the emergency exits, this automatically lets people know where to go. It limits panic and helps provide order to the situation when there is a system in place for such an event. It is imperative that all emergency equipment including fire alarms, and emergency lighting are all installed, installed in the correct places, and installed by a registered electrician who is qualified to know how and where to put this emergency equipment. Emergency lighting must be visible at all times and easily seen from anywhere in the premises to insure health and safety for everyone inside the premises.
It is essential for first responders, in the case of a fire to know where to enter and exit the building in the quickest possible way so as to help the most people and not come to harm themselves. A dark room can impair these responders from doing their job which is why emergency lighting aids them in a way that could save lives.
There are health and safety laws in place in the country to ensure that anyone who steps on the premises of any commercial business is safe, which is why all business must have adequate emergency lighting in place.
From a business point of view, it is also a benefit to have emergency lighting. Worse case scenario and all power cuts out, it can buy you time to get essential tasks done, some of which need to get done in order to keep your business afloat.
