Answers To Your Most Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is there an NFPA code or standard that requires tests and maintenance to be conducted periodically?
Yes! NFPA 101 Life Safety Code Section 31-11.3.7 requires a 30 second test at 30 day intervals and an annual test for a 90 minute duration. NFPA 70 National Electric Code Section 700-4 requires testing upon installation and periodically afterward. Both codes also require written records to be kept for inspection by the authority having jurisdiction.

 

Q: Does OSHA – Occupational Safety and Health Administration have any authority over emergency lighting?
Yes! Very much so. Section 1910.36 of the Occupational Safety and Health Act requires among other things: In every building or structure equipped for artificial illumination adequate and reliable illumination shall be provided for all exit facilities.

Q: Is my facility likely to have its emergency lighting inspected by “the authority having jurisdiction?”
Yes! Fire Marshals, Building Inspectors, and OSHA Inspectors can all inspect emergency lighting and give out fines if the units prove to be inoperable.

Q: What is emergency lighting?
Emergency lighting equipment is designed to provide illumination during power outages. The equipment is made up of a rechargeable battery, a means to charge the battery, one or more lamps to provide illumination, and a relay device to energize the lamps automatically when the AC power fails.
