Elevator Safety Tips

When waiting for elevators:

Push the elevator call button once for the direction you want to go in
Look and listen for the signal announcing your car's arrival
Be aware of health conditions that could contribute to falls or accidents
Stand clear of the elevator doors and stand aside for exiting passengers
If the arriving car is full, wait for the next car
Don't attempt to maneuver in or stop closing doors, wait for the next car
In the event of a fire or other situation that could lead to a disruption in electrical services, take the stairs

When boarding elevators:

Allow passengers exiting the elevator to clear before boarding
Watch your step - the elevator car may not be perfectly level with the floor
Stand clear of the doors - keep clothes and carry-ons away from the opening
Hold children and pets firmly
Passengers nearest to the doors should move first when the car arrives
Push and hold the DOOR OPEN button if doors need to be held open, or ask someone to push the button for you
Never try to stop a closing door, wait for the next car
Once on board, quickly press the button for your floor (not required on destination dispatch elevators) and move to the back of the car to make room for other passengers

When riding elevators:

Hold the handrail, if available
Stand next to the elevator wall, if available
Pay attention to the floor indications and announcements when provided
If the doors do not open when the elevator stops, push the DOOR OPEN button

When exiting elevators:

Exit immediately at your floor. Do not wait for others behind you
Do not push the people in front of you when exiting
Watch your step - the elevator car may not be perfectly level with the floor

In the event of an elevator emergency:

If the elevator should ever stop between floors, do not panic, there is plenty of air in the elevator
Never climb out of a stalled elevator
Use the ALARM or HELP button, the telephone or the intercom to call for assistance
Above all, wait for qualified help to arrive and never try to leave an elevator that has not stopped normally
Emergency lighting will come on in the event of a power failure
