Thinking from the outside here, if you do a monthly functionality (as opposed to duration) test, and you can do it safely within current guidelines, then while it might not be "essential" i would think it could be done without a problem.
How often is the duration test done?
Suppose the duration test showed failings though? Then you have a period for recharging which might leave the building without cover. However, in a failure scenario, you would then have to fix the problem, but surely this could also be done safely within current guidelines?
I guess I'm thinking, why not just do the monthly test?
If you didn't, and there was a problem during an evacuation...where would the blame lie?
 
I appreciate the different views, but I will do them because I am not putting myself or others at risk and I'm obeying the 2 metre rule, plus should an emergency evacuation be necessary from the flats in dark hours and there was an issue with the lights then it could potentially be serious.

I'm sure it's a higher priority and lower risk to me or anyone else than allowing off licences to remain open and be classed as 'essential.'
Excellent decision Peter! You have my full support...

It is essential to travel to do this work, as it can't be done from home.

at this point in time, the actual work you are doing has no bearing on weather you can do it, as long as it can be done safely using social distancing recommended actions.
