It was interesting to read the comprehensive answer from J.White to the question - "Gas and Electric inspections - nijjhar Last replied to: 1 December 2006" which brought up emergency lighting in HMO's. I didn't realise that 'lights on' is now a requirement, but then again I could never understand why it was a requirement to fit emergency lighting anyway as part of fire protection measures. They come on when the supply goes off, so in the case of a fire, they come on after the fire has been so well established as to have burnt through the supply cables or taken out the fuse board. Hopefully everybody is out by then and emergency lighting seems of little use. Surely one of the best ways to wire in emergency is into the lighting circuit so it comes on if a bulb pops and takes out the lighting circuit. This prevent accidents as tenants fumble around finding the fuse board…sometimes using a candle!
