A curving escalator is one of the most common escalator safety hazards in malls, according to an analysis by a security firm.
It can leave people in the wrong place at the wrong time.
It also poses an increased risk of injury and damage to homes and businesses.
It’s one of several safety problems with the escalator that is getting attention as malls continue to open and close.
A curbing system to keep the escalators in the proper places to reach customers was designed for people with wheelchairs, according a 2010 study in the Journal of Occupational Safety and Health.
The idea is that curving elevators will reduce the chance of people falling and hitting the ground.
But the new study suggests the system may not work for people who don’t have wheelchairs.
“The new study shows the system’s safety risks could be even greater for people without disabilities,” the study said.
The researchers analyzed data from more than 3,000 malls and found that an average of 11.2 people in malls with curving or inverted elevators were injured or killed each year.
It found that a person who had to be stretchered on an escalator was five times more likely to die than someone who didn’t have to.
The average number of people who died from an escalators failure was 14.1, the researchers said.
The authors wrote that the number of injured people was “significantly higher” than those who died because of a “flat” escalator.
The study also found that elevators that had been designed to safely close at the end of a trip were more likely than other types to fall, leaving people in harm’s way.
“The design of the curving elevator is important to ensuring the safety of the elevator operator,” the authors wrote.
Circles of safety The escalators and elevators have a number of different safety features.
One is that the elevators can be set in different directions, such as curving down the side of a building to open doors, or curving up to open more rooms.
Another feature is that there is a “lock down” system that stops people from moving too fast.
There are also ways to keep people from sliding out of the way, including using an escalating ramp.
In addition to the safety problems, there is also the possibility that the escalating systems could fall, the study noted.
Some malls have also installed safety barriers at the top of escalators to keep customers from sliding, which may also reduce the likelihood of an accident.
The U.S. Department of Transportation has recommended curbing elevators to help prevent escalator failures and to make them safer.
