Construction process starts with the architects, they are responsible for the design of the initial structure, then the engineers, each in their specialty, provide special information to the design. Usually the last to give their concept and contribute in the area of knowledge is the electrical engineer, and its latest designation is the emergency lighting of any structure, this pattern is more frequent in commercial or residential installations.
In a safety evacuation protocol, lighting is the cornerstone for plans to be executed successfully. Every catastrophic event in the world, of any nature, such as industrial accidents, or natural disasters put issues on the table; How to avoid or minimize the impact of these events? Are the plans and evacuation drills of efficient and well-planned buildings? When should you start planning and who should be involved in the planning?
The planning of emergency lighting must be evaluated from the moment of conceptualization of the structure to be built. One of the reasons is so that such lighting can meet the standards that vary from country to country, even from region to region, as they are not fully standardized. The second reason, but more important is building fully efficient and autonomous emergency lighting system that fulfill different protocols where they are used, evacuations, simulations, power cuts among other eventualities.
