Elevator Safety

  • Always stand near the control panel.
  • If you suspect trouble or are attacked, push the alarm button and as many floor buttons as possible so that the elevator will halt quickly, probably at the next floor.
  • Do not get on an elevator with someone who makes you feel uncomfortable.
  • If other passengers get off the elevator, leaving you with someone who makes you feel uncomfortable, get off with the other passengers. Wait for another elevator or take the stairs.
  • Allow other passengers to push the buttons for their floors first.
