Safelights don't last forever, and become 'unsafelights' after some time.

But realistically, the test strip and the work print should be affected equally. You can test it by making two identical prints, one where you have the safelight turned off during the entire process, and one where your safelight is turned on. If there's any difference between the two prints, you need to replace the safelight, or use a different kind (some papers are not compatible with OC filters and need red).
