This is a house newsletter from Worley Parson's dated 25 February 2011. I think it is worth sharing with other readers as a community service.
A child aged around two to three years of age got his left leg trapped between the escalator skirt and the side of the escalator step while going down the escalator in a shopping mall in Kuala Lumpur, early last year. This accident resulted in serious injuries to his leg where some bones in his legs were broken.
Here are suggestions to ensure passenger safety while riding on an escalator:
» Make sure that shoes laces are tightly tied to avoid them getting stuck between the escalator skirt and the side of escalator step;
» Always hold children's hands on escalators and do not allow children to sit or play on the escalator step when taking an escalator;
» Always look ahead, stand in the middle of the steps in between the yellow coloured border on the steps, and hold on to the handrail;
» Avoid standing on the side of the steps;
»Know where the emergency button shutoff is located (usually at each end of the escalator) if you need to stop the escalator;
» Do not ride on the escalator handrail;
» Do not lean on the escalator handrail.
