Posters with gunny tag-lines like "We've already stepped on this area!" in both Chinese and English have been seen on escalators at a shopping mall in northeast China's Shenyang city, to avail customers' safety concerns after a string of freak accidents reported by Chinese media in recent days.

The eye-catching posters in yellow were pasted at the top of each escalator on all the floors.
 
The move comes after a woman fell to her death, when part of an escalator came off in a shopping mall in central China's Hubei province last month. The woman fell through a gap that suddenly opened up at the top of an operating escalator. Video footage showing the exact moment of this freak accident went viral in China and has led to a widespread concern over the safety of lifts and escalators.

Two days ago a woman in Shenyang, nearly got hurt by another escalator related accident when the step in front of her suddenly came off.
 
The quality inspection bureau in Shenyang has started a massive operation to check all the escalators in the city.
