Risk type: Injuries
When the door action mechanism is disconnected from the power supply, the inward-swinging door has no obstacle detection device via the pressure-wave switch. If a passenger/object happens at that precise moment to be right in the middle of the doorway and is thus not detected as an obstruction, there is a risk that this person/object may become trapped.
