World leading business power protection suppliers, Kohler Uninterruptible Power (KUP) (headquartered in Hampshire, UK) has launched a free emergency lighting, CPD-approved training session which has been developed for design engineers, contractors or facility managers who are responsible for the safe evacuation of people from business premises, should the power go out.
The new CPD accredited training sessions will include practical insights into the application of BS5266-1 safety legislation because the government’s required need for a risk assessment needs careful consideration to ensure the design and installation are fit for purpose. It will also cover the associated standards for luminaires and centrally powered systems and highlight likely trends for standards moving forward and how to approach the risk assessment needed to ensure design and installation is fit for purpose, concluding with free access to auditable forms to support engineers in this process.
Rob Taylor, Sales Director at KUP says: “These sessions are relevant for engineers who work with life safety applications but it’s relevant for anyone working in healthcare and education because of the importance of being able to get people out safely from all departments, and all of the buildings that have emergency lighting such as residential accommodation, lecture theatres, student unions in education, and theatres, wards, catering and retail outlets in healthcare.”
Backed by Kohler Co.’s 100+ years of power protection experience and innovation, Kohler Uninterruptible Power provides solutions, expertise, remote support facilities and an extensive network of field service engineers to customers offering fast 24/7 availability. All its training courses including this one are CPD approved by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE).
