Exit and Emergency Light Testing

Ensure your emergency lights are visible.

  • Emergency & Exit Light Testing - AS/NZ 2293.3

Employees have a legal ‘Duty of Care’ to ensure that Emergency and Exit Lights work adequately in a power out or other emergency so people are able to quickly and safely exit their way out of the building.

Australian Standard AS/NZS 2293.2:1995 states that exit and emergency lighting must be tested in accordance to “…The procedures specified in clauses 3.2.2 and 3.2.3 …” and not exceed intervals of more than six months.

Before tests are carried out we ensure that no interruption to the normal supply has taken place for at least 16 hours.

Tests Required:

6 monthly

  • Check that fluorescent lamps are free from defects
  • Manual Discharge Test (simulated power failure). Emergency luminaries and exit signs shall remain illuminated for no less than 90 minutes.
  • Restore light to normal condition to check battery charger operation.
  • Automatic discharge test of each unit to test visual indicator functionality.

12 monthly

  • Carry out all tests as performed in 6 monthly.
  • Clean all light-emitting and reflecting surfaces of emergency luminaries and exit signs.

If required FAULTY emergency luminaries or exit signs will be repaired or replaced.
