Top Ten Stairlift Safety Tips
Stairlifts are a safe and well-developed technology that has been around for over a hundred years. However, it’s important to keep these safety tips in mind to ensure the safe use of your stairlift:
- Always read the manual carefully and familiarize yourself with the operation and safety features of your stairlift.
- Always wear the seatbelt and ensure it is securely fastened during operation.
- Do not use the stairlift to transport items such as food, animals, laundry, or any other objects not intended for the lift.
- Supervise children when using the stairlift and do not allow them to play with or operate it unsupervised.
- Stairlifts are designed to carry one person at a time. Never attempt to carry more than one person on the lift.
- Ensure that other household members or visitors are aware of the presence of the stairlift and any potential trip hazards associated with it.
- Ensure that pets are kept away from the stairlift and out of harm’s way during operation.
- Before using the stairlift, make sure the stairway is clear of any obstructions or articles.
- When mounting or dismounting the stairlift at the top of the stairs, ensure that the seat is rotated and locked at a 45° or 90° angle.
- Avoid making contact with moving parts of the stairlift to prevent injury.
- Keep your stairlift in optimal condition by scheduling annual servicing and maintenance.
