Emergency lighting is present in all types of buildings, from hospitals to schools, hotels, offices or residential buildings and is on when the electric supply to the normal lighting fails. Emergency lighting provides illumination and guidance for occupants to safely exit a building in the case of an incident. Emergency lighting is mandatory, needs continuous assessment and should be maintained.

LightingEurope has a Subgroup dedicated to Emergency Lighting that raises awareness about the importance of emergency lighting as an essential part of the overall safety in a building and that promotes the technical developments that facilitate the required maintenance.
