Employers have a legal requirement to have emergency and exit lights tested every six months and the results recorded according to Australian Standards 2293.2:1995
In the case of electrical failure or other emergency, it is imperative the emergency and exit lighting systems on your site are working 100% so that people may safely and quickly make their way out of the site.
AWTT performs on site testing of your emergency and exit light systems to Australian Standard 2293.2 to ensure that in case of emergency these systems are fully functioning.
AWTT conducts a 6 monthly and yearly procedure to ensure that the Australian Standard is being met
AWTT Perform the following test 6 monthly:
- Ensure there have been no power interruptions for 16hrs prior.
- Inspection of fluoro lights for blackened ends, if observed replacement of tube is required

- Reinstate light to normal operating condition and check that the battery charger operation indicator functions correctly.
