                            JOINT RESOLUTION


 
    To designate the week beginning November 6, 1994, as ``National 
            Elevator and Escalator Safety Awareness Week''.

Whereas the Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates there are 14,697 
        injuries occurring on elevators and escalators each year;
Whereas individuals in the United States suffer injury each year on elevators 
        and escalators despite the best efforts of the industry to provide safe 
        equipment;
Whereas a majority of the individuals in the United States who suffer injury on 
        elevators and escalators are children under the age of 10 and the 
        elderly;
Whereas most injuries can be avoided through education; and
Whereas the people of the United States and especially the children and elderly 
        must be educated on the safe and proper use of elevators and escalators 
        for the avoidance of injury: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United 
States of America in Congress assembled, That the week beginning 
November 6, 1994, is designated as ``National Elevator and Escalator 
Safety Awareness Week'', and the President is authorized and requested 
to issue a proclamation calling upon the people of the United States to 
observe such week with appropriate ceremonies and activities.
