Protect yourself from the devastating effects of fire

In 2022/23, there were 10,052 workplace fires, 282 more fires than the previous year, according to government data, with a majority of fires in industrial, food and drink, and retail premises. With each of those fires inside an occupied building, comes the risk of an injury or fatality.

Inside a workplace with fire, people can often be afraid and unaware of where they should go, or where safety is. That’s why it is essential to install an emergency lighting system in your office building – so people can safely guide themselves out of the building to a pre-agreed point.

Every emergency lighting system needs to be bespoke. We will work with you to carefully assess your building and pick the best routes for your system – minimising the chance of injury and maximising the chance of safely exiting the building.

Fire and life safety: We have a number of different alarm systems available to choose from, as well as fire suppression and stopping solutions. Combine these with your emergency lighting system for a holistic system to stay safe. PAVA System: Public address and voice alarm (PAVA) systems can be an integral part of your fire system, providing clear and concise communication to all occupants of your premises. Emergency Voice Communication System (EVCS): EVCS helps disabled or impaired people get help. The EVCS can be accessed by rescue staff who can effectively rescue anyone stranded in a building fire. When combined with elements of our life and fire safety system, your Emergency Lighting system will help keep people in your office building safe and quickly away from any areas of danger.

Covering all angles with emergency voice systems

It’s essential to make sure that any fire prevention system reaches everybody, and doesn’t leave any vulnerable individuals unable to reach help, or help themselves. Emergency Voice Communication Systems (EVCS): An emergency voice communication system will help disabled or mobility-impaired people to communicate with the emergency services and colleagues in the event of a fire. It will also allow the fire brigade, emergency marshals and evacuees to communicate with each other to prevent any confusion and keep everybody safe.

Guiding staff out of the building

Making sure that people leave any premises at risk in a calm, orderly manner and know how to, is an essential component of any life safety system. We provide BS8629-compliant evacuation alert systems (EAS) tailored for high-rise residential buildings, aiding fire and rescue services (FRS) during evacuations. Our Fire Team is expertly trained to design, install, and maintain EAS in accordance with BS8629 standards and guidelines.

Why does a business need an emergency lighting system?

Did you know that 44% of companies do not have the correct emergency lighting installed?

Having compliant and modern emergency lighting systems in your office building is the best way to prevent any fatalities and injuries in the event of a fire. It quickly, safely and easily directs people to points of safety.

After the Grenfell Fire disaster, the Government and regulatory bodies have significantly tightened up their regulations and legislation to prevent the outbreak of a similar tragedy. This means that office managers need to keep an eye on updating regulation and legislation to prevent the risk of fines, or even prison time if the breaches of regulation are severe enough.

How often does SECOM perform maintenance of its installed emergency lighting systems?

We perform regular audits and checks on installed emergency lighting. Since every business is different, we perform these checks at regular intervals that make sense for you and your business.

Speak to our teams about our audits and maintenance, and we will work with you to visit as regularly as you need.

Why does the emergency lighting system in my office need to be bespoke?

No two offices are exactly the same, even if they were built that way.
That is why our assessors will visit your site – to develop an understanding of your business’ layout and how they can create an effective emergency lighting system. It also gives you the opportunity to address any concerns you have with your office, and gives you the peace of mind that your emergency lighting works flawlessly.
