Most elevator accidents that occur in institutional buildings happen when people are rushing, distracted or feeling inconvenienced. These behaviours are often caused when people are:
- Feeling tired after a long day of work
- Hurrying to beat rush hour or catch the local bus or train
- Frustrated because the elevator is taking too long or is full when it gets there
- Annoyed because smart phone reception has been lost
The next time you find yourself in one of these situations, take a breath and keep your cool otherwise your actions could cause an accident and delay you further.
