Hold the SAFE / escalators

Hold the SAFE

The CPSC (US Consumer Product Safety Commission) estimates that there were 7,300 hospital emergency room-treated injuries from escalators in 1994. 75 percent of these injuries were due to falls, another 20 percent occurred when hands, feet or shoes were trapped in escalators.
The height of traditional escalators is not effective to keep balance for children.
Children can not only hold parents' hand, but also hold handrail to keep their balance.
Unlike traditional escalator htandrails, “Hold the SAFE” shape is like a parent's hand to give children more security.
