    Top 5 dangers of bus stations

    Are you aware of the dangers of bus stations? Many people use them almost daily, taking buses to work, to school and to go shopping. It’s easy to become complacent, though. While most bus stations are very safe and are kept in pristine condition, there is a potential for some to present possible dangers to those who are using them or working in them. Read more here so you can see what we mean.

    Considering the potential dangers

    1. Slips. With so many people moving through the average bus station, it’s not surprising that some items will undoubtedly be dropped. When this happens, they should be cleared up promptly to avoid the prospect of someone slipping over in the mess.
    2. Trips. Trip hazards can occur in all kinds of ways. Dropped rubbish, left luggage and uneven paving or floor surfaces could all present potential trip hazards.
    3. Falls. A fall in a bus station could mean falling on a bus, falling as you try to board or disembark from a bus, or even a fall in the station itself. In any event, you could end up being harmed in any one of these situations.
    4. Dangers of moving buses. Buses are normally kept well away from pedestrians in bus stations. You’ll usually find crossings in appropriate places to allow pedestrians to cross from one area to another in complete safety. However, there is still the potential for things to go wrong and for people to be injured.
    5. Collisions. This could mean one bus colliding with another, leaving those on board at risk of possible injury. Alternatively, it could mean someone is hit by a bus while navigating their way towards a bus stop.

    Have you succumbed to the dangers of bus stations?
