Safety tips during emergency in Lifts

Here is some useful information for you. One might wonder what would happen had they got trapped in a lift. Here are the steps that you can follow to ensure your safety.

First - Quickly press all the different levels of buttons in the lift.
Second - Hold on tight to the handle (if there is any).
Third - Lean your back and head against the wall forming a straight line.
Fourth - Bend your knees
Reason - When the lift falls, you will not know when it will hit the ground, and it may result in whole body bone fracture.

Point 1 - When the emergency electricity supply is being activated it will stop the lift from falling further.
Point 2 - It is to support your position and prevent you from falling or getting hurt when you lose your balance.
Point 3 - Leaning against the wall is to use it as a support for your back/spine as protection.
Point 4 - Ligament is a flexible, connective tissue. It can be attached to the bone part of the activities, but limit the scope of their activities in order to avoid injury. Thus, the impact of fractured bones will be minimized from the severe pressure during fall.
