Cinemas reopen - emergency lighting

The reopening of cinemas

Remember those trips to the cinema to see the latest blockbuster? Seems like an age ago? When will cinemas open? The interval is over – cinemas reopen! With ‘step three’ of the government’s lockdown easing plan, indoor cinemas are now allowed to reopen their doors in England and Scotland from May 17th. Finally a light at the end of a very long tunnel for the UK’s cinemas. With this in mind, now is the time to make sure that these premises are ready. Safety of customers and staff in the building during an emergency should be reviewed.

Safety provision of your building

Emergency lighting is an essential part of the safety provision of every building. It provides immediate secondary lighting when the power supply to normal lighting fails. That being the case, a risk assessment should be carried out. Above all, this is to identify the areas which require emergency lighting and the type of installation needed.

In the event that an emergency occurs, everyone should be able to leave the building safely. Panic and confusion can be eased by strategically placing emergency lighting and signs to show the way out. For this reason, it’s important that exits can clearly be seen whenever the building is occupied.

Assuming all the emergency lighting fixtures are in place, servicing and maintenance of the systems should be carried out regularly. A routine inspection could flag up the need for repairs and alterations. Consequently a service and maintenance contract with a competent person or company should be in place. BLE will offer a service that ensures that the system remains fully operational.
