food elevator National Elevator Escalator Safety Awareness Week takes place annually on the second full week of November. The purpose is to publicize the general safety rules which have been developed by the Foundation. Individual communities have created materials which they distribute throughout the Awareness week, some have gotten the mayors and governors in their areas to issue Proclamations, some have even gotten Public Service Announcement spots on local television stations, in their efforts to raise awareness and safe usage of escalators and elevators.

  The main focus of the Foundation is to educate children safety when aboard an elevator or escalator. The Foundation's Safe-T-Rider program for kids was featured on the �Today� show in 1996 which means that the safety message reached 8 million homes. While it may seem to some that this is a big to-do over something that many would say is common sense, the improper operation or usage of an elevator or escalator could cause grave bodily injury and even, in rare instances, death. At one time or another we have all seen a child in an elevator or on an escalator at the mall horsing around, walking up the down escalators or vice versa, or riding toward the slot that you step over to exit the escalators at the end of your ride with their shoestrings untied or hanging down where they could get caught in that slot.
