How to use an escalator safely

Although escalators aren’t exactly considered one of the top ways to cause yourself an injury, they are a large piece of machinery that is perfectly capable of damaging you if you do not respect it in the same way that you respect any machinery. Some people are afraid of escalators for this reason, but there are plenty of ways in which you can keep yourself safe on an escalator, whether you are alone, travelling with children or loaded down with bags.

  • Know when not to use the escalator. Although most people are able to use an escalator safely and comfortably, from time to time someone will simply not be able to use it safely. If you are in a wheelchair, or have a pushchair or heavy luggage with you, ask for the lift. If there is an escalator, there will always be a lift available as well, you may just have to be pointed in the right direction by staff.
  • Face the direction of the escalator. Always face forwards towards the direction you are going, and hold onto the handrail if you are able. This will prevent you falling or losing your balance.
  • Don’t run. You are able to walk on an escalator, but always and only in the direction the escalator is travelling, and slowly so that you do not slip and cause yourself an injury. If the escalator is very busy then simply stay still and it will get you where you need to go.
  • Don’t push people. Sometimes on a busy escalator, everyone is busy thinking of themselves and how they are going to get off and so push others, this can lead to other people being injured, or even yourself if other people push back.
