The vast majority of elevator incidents continue to be related to unsafe user behaviour such as passengers:

  • distracted by smart devices
  • charging or running through closing doors
  • using hands or legs to stop a closing door
  • not paying attention to children while on and around elevators
  • being overloaded by bags and parcels
  • try to get out if power fails or elevator suddenly stops

The next time you find yourself in one of these situations, take a breath and keep your cool otherwise your actions could cause an accident and delay you further.
