Leading organisations and experts are set to gather at LuxLive next month to explore how the problem of poor and absent emergency lighting installations can be tackled.
The Emergency Lighting Summit – which takes place in LuxLive’s Escape Zone – comes at a time of heightened concern and awareness of fire safety standards.
Organisations backing the event include BSI, British Approvals for Fire Equipment and the Industry Committee for Emergency Lighting.
The Escape Zone will address the need for suppliers, specifiers, standards bodies and building owners to address a culture of complacency in the sector that has developed over recent decades. Risk assessments – a key tool of the standards – are not always conducted, even in major institutions and organisations, and those that are are not always as thorough as they should be. There is a lack of knowledge about emergency lighting requirements and standards.
A comprehensive series of presentations on emergency lighting in LuxLive’s Escape Zone will help facilities managers get up to speed on the latest best practice recommendations, legislation and guidance.
The Escape Zone will give attendees the opportunity to learn about ‘stay put lighting’, the latest changes to the Emergency Lighting Code of Practice, get a deeper understanding of how best to manage emergency lighting across large estates and get the inside track on emergency testing options.
The Escape Zone is free to attend, and takes place LuxLive on 15-16 November at ExCeL London. Find out more and register for free at the LuxLive website.
