About the book
Third edition 2019
Publisher: The Institution of Engineering and Technology
Size: 44 Mb;
The Electrician's Guide to Emergency Lighting is one of a number of publications prepared by the 1ET to provide guidance on electrical installations in buildings.
This Guide is concerned with emergency lighting and in particular emergency escape lighting and must be read in conjunction with the relevant legislation and guidance such as
Approved Documents B and L in England and Wales and the Building Standards Division (BSD) technical handbooks in Scotland and the relevant British Standards, in particular the BS 5266 series of standards.
Designers and installers should always consult the relevant documents to satisfy themselves of compliance.
It is expected that persons carrying out work in accordance with this Guide will be competent to do so - competence being a statutory requirement of the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 for those engaged in electrical work - and a competent person is required to carry out inspections, tests and repairs to emergency lighting systems.
This edition of the Electrician's Guide to Emergency Lighting has been revised to align with the new 2016 revision of BS 5266-1 which has introduced new provisions and requirements, and changes from the previous 2011 edition. Designers, installers, dutyholders and persons responsible for premises are advised to make themselves
familiar with the new 2016 revision of the standard. This revision took effect from the 31st May 2016.
The emergency lighting installation logbook and all installation certification, testing and maintenance documentation must be retained and made available for review and inspection when required.
