Elevator Tips
  • 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.
  • Never try to stop a closing door, wait for the next car.
  • Push and hold the DOOR OPEN button if doors need to be held open, or ask someone to push the button for you.
  • Pay attention to the floor indications.
  • If the doors do not open when the elevator stops, push the DOOR OPEN button.

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.
