An escalator can be a very convenient way to navigate your way through a busy building such as a shopping centre, train station or airport. An escalator can also be dangerous and the reality is, accidents can happen on them.
When on an escalator to go up or down, you don’t think about any potential danger, you simply stand on them absentmindedly whether you have luggage or not.
Even though they are among the safest ways to travel indoors, it is important to take care on escalators to ensure accidents such as slips and trips are prevented, especially if you have shopping bags, luggage, or a pushchair or wheelchair.
