Training

It is often the case that the end user, whether it’s a landlord, occupier or employer, is unaware that it is their responsibility to ensure that the emergency lighting system is checked and maintained in accordance with BS5266-1. Drawing on 40 years of emergency lighting knowledge and expertise, EL&C in association with Mackwell want to use this knowledge to educate everyone on the importance of emergency lighting and how it saves lives every day. Emergency lighting is a legal requirement for all commercial premises, a fact that is sometimes overlooked. We plan to rectify that…

 

Lack of fire safety compliance is generally the case in many UK public and commercial buildings. After successfully lobbying and raising awareness in other parts of the world, our focus on the UK is to help close the knowledge gap in the specific area of emergency lighting compliance. We see education as a crucial function of our businesses and as a result are hosting several training events throughout the year. These courses will give clear guidance on what the UK legislation says, who is responsible and practical solutions for issues many organisations face in remaining compliant across their estates. Our in-house experts leading the workshops have a wealth of experience in this safety critical field.
