How Do I Test Emergency Lights?
To simulate a power failure, switch off power from the circuit via the circuit breaker.
Walk through the whole building, checking that the emergency lights are working.
If any emergency lights are malfunctioning, make a note in your building’s fire safety logbook and call out an electrician ASAP.
Switch the main power back on.
Re-walk the route to ensure the emergency lights are now off (non-maintained) or still functioning (maintained).
