Darwin Emergency Exit Lighting Testing
If you have exit lights or emergency lights in your office or building, the Australian Standards states that they must be checked every 6 & 12 months & must be certified by a licensed technician.
All tests, failures, and maintenance is required to be documented in an onsite log book for auditing and OH&S purposes.
Emergency lighting is an essential service that is quite often forgotten, until an accident or catastrophe happens. In the event the power fails in your building, your emergency and exit lights must remain lit for at least 90 minutes, to allow people safe passage out of the building. It is imperative to maintain all emergency and exit lighting in commercial buildings, to comply with relevant building codes in accordance with Australian Standards (AS/NZS 2293.2).
Not only will you comply with exit testing regulations, but you will have greater peace of mind in knowing that your emergency exit lighting is fully operative.

Smoke alarms save lives. Without them in your home, your risk of death from a house fire is up to 3 times higher. Nearly half of all house fire deaths occur when people are sleeping.
Fire and Emergency Services recommends all homes are fitted with photoelectric smoke alarms (not ionization types).
Photoelectric smoke alarms are more effective than ionization types because they 'see' the smoke by detecting visible particles of combustion. For this reason, they are good at detecting smoldering fires and dense smoke and are not as prone to false alarms (from cooking etc.).
There are 2 kinds of photoelectric smoke alarms:
240-volt smoke alarms (also called 'hard-wired smoke alarms'). These are connected to the house electrical system and have a battery
9-volt smoke alarms (also called 'battery-operated smoke alarms') are stand-alone battery operated alarms.
Legislation has also been brought in that if you sell or rent your property that all homes must be fitted with photoelectric smoke detectors before sale or renting - so don't wait until then, make your home safe now!
