Safety Tips

WHEN WAITING FOR ELEVATORS:

Push the elevator call button once for the direction you want to go in. Stand clear of the elevator doors and stand aside for exiting passengers. In the event of a fire or other situation that could lead to a disruption in electrical services, take the stairs.


WHEN BOARDING ELEVATORS:

Watch your step – the elevator car may not be perfectly level with the floor. Stand clear of the doors – keep clothes and carry-ones away from the opening. Hold children and pets firmly. Passengers nearest to the doors should move first when the car arrives. Once on board, quickly press the button for your floor and move to the back of the car to make room for other passengers.


IN THE EVENT OF AN ELEVATOR EMERGENCY:

Remain calm. 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. Do not try to extract yourself from the elevator.


WHEN EXITING ELEVATORS:

Exit immediately at your floor. Do not wait for others behind you. Watch your step – the elevator car may not be perfectly level with the floor.
