We, at Elevator World, like to do our part in addressing jobsite safety to those who work on elevators and escalators.  We do so in the form of books, videos, software and a website.  And, thankfully our industry has a great non profit organization that’s mission is to educate the public on the safe and proper use of elevators, escalators and moving walks through informational programs.  Visit the Elevator Escalator Safety Foundation’s website today and let’s all do our part to make sure  accidents such as the picture above doesn’t happen again.

  1. For many years now I have been concerned about the tendency for escalator maintenance to be stretched beyond the manufactuer’s specifications. On a recent tour of Europe I saw, first hand, an escalator fall incident where “step rock” may have been a contributor.
    The incident is described more fully at http://www.trevyoung.com/index.php?p=1_39
