- Emergency lighting testing: British standards recommends that emergency lights are tested twice a year, including a full 3 hour test and an operational test (typically for 1 hour). These tests are carried out to ensure that the emergency lighting system will be fit-for-purpose during any power outages.

Class 1 appliances will have an earth connection, and a Class 2 appliance will not. If there is a square box symbol on the appliance, it tells you it’s Class 2. If there’s no symbol then it’s Class 1. It is recommended that portable appliances are tested based on the following frequencies:
