British Standards Institution has published a second edition of “A Guide to Emergency Lighting”. The guidance is aimed at users, designers, installation and maintenance engineers and explains the obligation to provide and maintain suitable systems to enable occupants to leave premises safely.
There is advice on all aspects of the design, installation, maintenance and testing of battery powered emergency lighting systems. The main changes from the original edition are updates to assist with the hazards identified by risk assessments, and expanded guidance on how to protect occupants from sudden loss of the normal lighting supply. Available from BSI Sales (tel: 020 8996 9001) at a cost of £50.00.
