Estates Emergency Lighting Policy

This Estates Policy outlines systems and procedures to control the risks of accident or injury to students, staff & visitors when the supply to the normal lighting fails.

This policy does not cover specialist requirements for the safe shutdown of or evacuation from processes or special experimental facilities for which a special risk assessment would have been prepared to evaluate the extent of any special risks involved, taking into account existing precautions and their effectiveness. Nor does it cover any provision of standby lighting to allow normal activities to continue during the loss of mains electricity supply.
