That’s why businesses all over the world are taking various measures to ensure their customers are protected from getting sick. Some try to ensure that people inside can maintain distance, others build protective barriers and offer face masks and disinfectants. A mall in Thailand went the extra mile to ensure the customers would be able to avoid touching surfaces as little as possible by installing foot pedals in their lifts.

“Seacon Square” mall in Prawet, Bangkok replaced the lift buttons with foot pedals, discouraging people from touching the same surface thus helping control the spread of the coronavirus. The mall’s representatives recently took to Twitter to showcase their update as well as encourage people to shop at their mall.

“Simply use the foot pedal 1 time in front of the lift To select up or down After that, when entering the lift step on the floor you want to go straight away,” the tweet said. “Convenient, safe, no need to touch hands!”
