Installation of Exit and Emergency Lighting

Always hire the company fully in compliance

Emergency and exit lighting will aid all residents in a building in swiftly locating exit ways and providing a safe passage for escape in the case of an emergency. Have you ever seen a sign attached to an emergency exit door or a fire stair door that says “DO NOT OBSTRUCT” or “DO NOT KEEP OPEN?” It is illegal under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 to place anything in front of or near an emergency exit door that will prevent personnel from exiting the building, and it is also illegal to remove or interfere with any signage attached to the emergency door.

The Australian standard 2293 for emergency and exit lights is essential knowledge for business owners, building managers, and even employers. The standard is divided into three parts, each of which has various sections on emergency lighting design, installation, and maintenance. Penalties and fines can be imposed on business owners, building managers, and employers for failing to comply with the regulations under the WHS laws. In accordance with AS/NZS Standards 2293, emergency lights must be examined, tested, and serviced every six months. This guarantees that all exit and emergency lights is operational and illuminates for at least 90 minutes.
