Elevators have become an inevitable part of modern buildings, transforming the lives of millions of people around the world. They are one of the safest means of transport. Advancements in the field of technology have improved the functionality and safety of these accessibility systems. However, accidents do occur. Safety can be improved by learning how to use elevators properly. Here are some simple guidelines that can prevent accidents and ensure a safe and comfortable ride:
- Watch your step while entering or exiting the elevator, as the door may not be in level with the ground. Step carefully over the threshold.
- Be patient enough to wait for the next ride if the car is full or if there is not enough room to stand comfortably in the cabin. Check the posted capacity of the device and do not to enter a device that is already at its maximum capacity.
