Escalator Safety Tips And Rules


Here are some tips and “rules” to keep in mind when using escalators. Most are elementary common sense, to be sure, but sometimes we forget…

Escalator and Moving Walk Safety Tips

When entering escalators and moving walks:

Watch the direction of the moving steps and enter only when steps are going in the proper direction

Step on and off with caution. Take extra care if you are wearing bifocals

Hold children or small packages firmly in one hand

Grasp the handrail as you step promptly onto the moving step or walkway

Keep loose clothing clear of steps and sides

Don’t use an inoperative escalator as a stairway

Don’t use an escalator to transport freight

If you are uncomfortable boarding or riding an escalator, use the elevator instead

When riding escalators and moving walks:

On escalators, stand in center of step and face forward

On moving walks, stationary passengers should stay to the right and let those walking pass on the left

Keep feet away from sides

Keep a steady grip on the handrail.

Don’t rest your handbag or parcels on the handrail

Don’t window-shop while riding

Don’t lean against or over the sides

Never ride barefoot

Don’t run

Never sit on the escalator step or moving walk

Parents should make sure children ride in a proper manner

When exiting escalators and moving walks:

Set off promptly

Don’t hesitate. Immediately move clear of the exit area – don’t stop to talk or look around. Other passengers may be behind you
