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:
- Trying to jam into an over crowded elevator
- Calling someone to let them know they’re on their way
- Rushing because they are late for an appointment or class
- Using their smart phone while getting on the elevator
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.
