Injuries typically happen while we're doing things we see as minor or familiar.

Elevators, escalators, autowalks, and automatic building doors are among the safest modes of travel, and millions of people use them every day. However, safety is a joint effort that involves everyone - including you. Learn below about the safe use of our equipment!

Children and safety

Habits learned young tend to stick. That is why KONE sees children as an important audience when it comes to reaching out on equipment safety.

Our beloved KONE safety mascots, Bob and Max, have visited many shopping centers, kindergartens, and customer premises around the world to promote safety in a fun and engaging way.

Useful resources for children (and adults too!)

Max and Bob can teach you about safe equipment use via a game, workbook and more!



Help Bob the elephant in his quest to find his friend Max the mouse, and pay attention to the proper use of elevators and escalators. Remember to tie your shoelaces!
