Doha: Mitsubishi Elevators & Escalators recently carried out a ‘Safe Rider’ awareness program at the Pak Shamaa School, Doha for primary school students with an aim to help children understand basic safety rules while using elevators and escalators.
The current lifestyle in Qatar allows more people than ever the opportunity to use elevators and escalators in places like office buildings, schools, hospitals, airports and shopping malls.
Moreover, people are moving from independent houses to apartments in Doha. With the growing usage of elevators in schools and other public places, ETA-MELCO, the local representatives of Mitsubishi Elevators felt the need to create awareness especially amongst young children to eliminate preventable accidents and injuries caused by misuse.
The awareness program was well received by the students and included series of video presentations apart from interactive sessions by ETA-MELCO staff. Also, illustrative handouts were given to the children to remember and share the safety awareness with their parents and guardians.
