Most elevator accidents that occur in residential buildings happen when people are rushing, distracted or feeling inconvenienced. These behaviours are often caused when people are:
- Trying to use their smart phone while getting on the elevator
- Hurrying because they are late for work or an appointment
- Frustrated because the elevator is taking too long or is full when it gets there
- Overloaded with groceries or packages
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.
