Failures of Elevators and Escalators and the Raw Data You Need to Know before You Take another Ride Blindly
The following information was obtained from a ConsumerWatch.com article a few years ago. The numbers are supported by many others as well. There are approximately 1 Million elevators in use in the United States. These elevators provide passengers with over 20 Billion rides per year. Many people do not know the dangers or how to protect themselves and are seriously injured.
As a result of using elevators, there are around 10 thousand injuries reported every year in the U.S. Add to that another 6 thousand escalator injuries and you arrive at a number that will soon reach 20 thousand reported injuries per year in the United States alone. Some would argue that the number is much higher and many many less serious injuries go unreported. Either way, this number has become too large. The risk to you and your loved ones has become too great to ignore!
