Precautions when using elevators

  • Elevators and escalator factory are commonly used equipment for carrying people and objects in high-rise buildings, and their safety is directly related to the personal safety of the elevator passengers. Correct and civilized riding is also an important factor to ensure the safe operation of elevators. The Municipal Work Safety Publicity and Education Center reminds citizens to pay attention to the following points when taking elevators:

    1. Be careful of loose and towed clothing before taking the elevator to prevent it from being caught by the floor or the car door and causing personal injury.
    2. Please do not take an elevator that has not posted the elevator safety inspection certificate or the certificate has expired. The certificate is usually posted in an obvious place in the car. Such elevators may be unsafe.
    3. It is strictly forbidden to take the elevator that is undergoing maintenance. At this time, the elevator is in an abnormal working condition, and safety accidents are likely to occur once it is taken.
    4. Do not allow children to ride the elevator alone, because children generally do not understand the rules for safe riding in elevators, and lack the ability to handle emergency situations in a timely and calm manner. Do not use a long string to lead children or pets on board, and use your hands to tighten or hug it to prevent the string from being caught by the floor or the car door and causing safety accidents.
    5. It is strictly forbidden to take the elevator with debris. Because the sundries elevator can only be used to transport books, documents, food and other items, there are no safety measures for people.
    6. If passengers are suddenly trapped in a malfunctioning elevator, do not panic. They should follow the first aid instructions in the elevator and contact the elevator rescue center and machine room through the intercom system in time, and wait for professional rescue. If you can’t get in touch, you can dial 119 or 110 directly.

    At the same time, because people trapped in the elevator cannot confirm the location of the elevator, so do not force the door, which will bring new dangers. There are safety windows on the top of the elevator. The safety windows are only used by elevator maintenance personnel. It is more dangerous to climb out of the elevator car by prying the safety windows on the elevator car. You can slap the door and shout, or take off your shoes, slap the door with your shoes, and send a signal for help. If no one responds, wait calmly, observe the movement, keep your strength, wait for rescue, and don't keep shouting for rescue.

    When the elevator car door is opened, pay attention to whether the elevator door shakes or has abnormal noise. Excessive shaking means that the elevator is not running smoothly. At the same time, you can walk into the car with a heavier foot to observe whether the car is solid. When riding an elevator, if the speed change is too large, and the car has severe bumps instead of maintaining a constant speed, it is an abnormal phenomenon. When taking the elevator, pay attention to whether the buttons are flexibly controlled. If you lose control, the risk factor of passenger elevator will increase accordingly.
