Having proper exit and emergency lighting is important in homes, particularly for new tenants and especially in basements and boiler rooms. Getting disoriented and navigating a dark environment can be difficult. Having these lights to provide guidance can be helpful in such situations. If the facility's power is out, the signs and lights rely on their internal batteries for proper functionality. This is why it has become a legal requirement to ensure that proper emergency and exit lighting is installed and maintained in business environments. With OSHA enforcing a monthly testing procedure of all emergency lights, exit signs, and combination units, maintaining these devices is not just good planning, it's also the law.

Exit and emergency lights are an important safety measure that often goes overlooked. Many dont realize that OSHA requires monthly inspections of emergency exit light installations. Please refer to your local and State guidelines for proper testing and record keeping procedures, which might need to be completed by a professional. There are three overall types of lighting devices: emergency lights, exit signs, and combination units, which are all hard-wired into the facilitys main power lines. Most devices have a test button, which disconnects AC power and put thse unit in battery backup mode. To summarize the testing procedure, the test button is used to confirm that the device is able to properly function for a predefined period of time. Failure to pass this test means that the battery needs to be replaced.
