The Importance of Regular Inspections

Emergency and exit lights are critical for ensuring the safety of your occupants during an emergency. Regular inspections and maintenance are not just legal requirements but essential for:

  • Avoiding Heavy Fines: Non-compliance can result in significant financial penalties.
  • Preventing Bodily Harm: Ensure your lights work when needed to avoid injuries.
  • Mitigating Legal Risks: Protect your business from lawsuits by maintaining safe conditions.
  • Reducing Property Damage: Functional emergency lights can help prevent further damage during an incident.
  • Maintaining Business Operations: Avoid disruptions and financial losses by staying compliant.

Monthly Inspections and Tests

To comply with NFPA 101 and other codes, it’s crucial to conduct monthly tests:

  • 30-Second Test: Press and hold the “push to test” button on each battery-operated emergency and exit light for at least 30 seconds. Ensure the lights and batteries are fully functional.
  • Identify Issues: Look for dimming lights or burnt-out bulbs and schedule maintenance or repairs if needed.
  • Self-Testing Lights: For battery-operated self-testing/self-diagnostic lights, perform a visual inspection to confirm they are operational.

Annual Inspections and Tests

Annual tests are more comprehensive and involve:

  • 90-Minute Test: Conduct the required 90-minute test as per NPFA 101, Sec. 7.9.3. This involves cutting off AC power to ensure the emergency and exit lights can sustain their operation for the entire duration.
  • Professional Assistance: While you can perform this test yourself following the manufacturer’s instructions, using a fire protection service provider ensures a thorough and hassle-free process.

Documentation and Compliance

Maintaining records of both monthly and annual tests is essential. These records must be available for review by your local Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) to confirm compliance.
