In 2013 CIRIA published guidance on stair safety in C722 Safer stairs in public places - assessment of existing stairs (Gilbertson, 2013). During the research for that publication, it was decided that companion guidance on escalators should be prepared, noting that by their nature escalators are nearly always in public places. Readers of this guide are advised to also read the complementary CIRIA C722.

The guidance provided is based upon advice provided by HSL to RSSB and LU, and input from the project steering group (PSG). It is applicable to escalators in public places such as transport hubs and retail centres. It is focused upon the issues that affect normal use of the escalator and not upon technical safety issues such as machine failure.
