Emergency Exit Light Testing

If a fire starts somewhere in your building and smoke starts to fill the place, having well illuminated emergency lighting and fire exit signs can save you seconds that you need to get everyone to safety. Illuminated emergency and exit lighting can make all the difference during an emergency.

  • Inspect every emergency light and exit sign to ensure they are in good working condition
  • Identify any light or sign not working at the beginning of the test
  • Identify any light or sign initially working but not working at the end of the 90-minute discharge test
  • Clean all fittings and reflective surfaces

The Guiding Document

The Australian Standard for the inspection and maintenance of emergency lighting and exit signs is AS/NZS 2293.2:1995.
