In case of any power cuts locally and nationally, backup measures must be put in place, as well as checks to ensure fire safety systems have restarted correctly and are operating as they should.
In addition to checking fire safety systems, businesses are encouraged to ensure that other equipment that stops during power cuts restarts safely and does not pose a fire risk when doing so, especially if restarting whilst unsupervised.
This may also affect the use of medical equipment and storage of some medicines (e.g. in care homes, GP surgeries, hospitals, or daycare facilities).
