Today’s the first day of European Week for Safety and Health at Work 2020. To make its own contribution, Agoria has developed an online test to see how safely you take escalators. Your knowledge is tested in 10 multiple-choice questions. We focus on 10 specific points based on an analysis of the most commonly occurring accidents on escalators. Your score is provided at the end of the test, with a clear explanation of what constitutes safe behaviour.
The industry also keeps an eye on the safety of escalators per se. Given the constant developments in technology and the increasing awareness of safety, it is recommended to adapt older escalators to modern safety standards. Find out more about how to do so in this brochure:
