We truly live in an amazing time. Technology changes everyday, and modern conveniences are constantly making our lives easier. Sometimes, we take these conveniences for granted.
We never expect that when we get onto an escalator at the local mall, or in the subway station that it may malfunction but accidents happen on escalators and when they do the injuries can be catastrophic!
Incidents involving escalators seriously injure over 17,000 people each year in the United States, according to data provided by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
How does this happen? The majority of escalator accidents are caused by the improper maintenance and servicing of the escalator and its equipment. These accidents could easily have been prevented if the escalators had been correctly installed or correctly serviced and maintained after installation.
