The interior and exterior lighting for your building or facility is an important area to stay on top of throughout the year. In addition to the lighting needed for people to do their jobs and to navigate around your facility, there is also the emergency lighting in case the power goes out so that people can safely exit the building.
If you fail to properly maintain your lighting it could result in safety issues for your employees, tenants and visitors as well as fines from your municipality for violating local building codes, and even legal liability if someone gets injured.
In order to ensure that your facility is up to code and that your lighting system is working properly, you should schedule routine lighting maintenance throughout the year. That will make it easier to identify any problems more timely and give you the peace of mind that your lighting system is working as it should.
Any building or facility where people come and go is a candidate for a lighting maintenance plan. Here are just a few of the entities that should have a plan in place to ensure that all of the lighting works as intended:
When you hire a professional to conduct your lighting inspection, they will walk through the entire facility and grounds to identify your existing lighting. If desired, they can make recommendations for improvements as well as potential savings opportunities from more efficient LED lighting. They will also help you put together a lighting maintenance plan to address your needs going forward.

Maintenance can be scheduled monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or annually depending on your needs.
