Abstract The purpose of safety lighting is to come into operation in case of a breakdown of normal lighting, to allow the evacuation of the occupants to the exterior of the building without panic. As a function of criteria defined in the regulations, safety lighting needs to be either one of signalling or one of ambience. Topics covered include: signalling lighting; ambience lighting; types of autonomous power supplies; types of buildings requiring safety lighting; classifications, standards and regulations applicable in France.
