SELECT is delighted to announce the introduction of a new half-day seminar on emergency lighting.

Introduced in response to Member demand, the course is recommended for anyone who is responsible for the maintenance of emergency lighting systems and the collating of relevant information on an emergency lighting log book.

At the end of the course, candidates will have a knowledge and understanding of BS 5266-1:2016 and other associated standards. They will also be aware of their responsibilities of, and the need for maintenance, testing and certification of emergency lighting systems.

The course will cover the general requirements of BS 5266-1:2016 including the choice, design, installation and certification of emergency lighting systems. It will also include the following changes from the previous standard:

  • Clearer guidance on the requirements for escape route emergency lighting luminaries and signs in different types of premises
  • Guidance including illustrations on the emergency lighting requirements for different types and sizes of rooms
  • Guidance on the requirements where sudden loss of an individual normal lamp could prejudice safety
  • Clearer guidance on the types of wiring systems and test facilities required for emergency lighting
  • New improved certification
  • Guidance on the evaluation of existing premises to help decide if the emergency lighting system is adequate for its current use.

SELECT Training Manager Jenny Cryans said: “Members have been asking us for training for employees who are responsible for the maintenance of emergency lighting systems and the collating of relevant information within an emergency lighting log book.

“As a result, we’ve created this half-day seminar to provide them with further information and assist them with the role. We’ve now scheduled our first seminar and already have a few places booked.”

The first of the new courses will take place later this year, at a venue to be conmfirmed. Cost is £70 + VAT for SELECT Members.
