Particular consideration should be given to buttons being clearly visible, whether they have been activated or not. Their purpose should be clear and alarm buttons should be positioned where they cannot be activated easily by mistake. The buttons should be tactile, preferably slightly bowed, so that they project from the panel. This may enable helping dogs to activate them. Tactile markings, such as Braille or raised numbers, should be to the side of the button so that the lift is not activated while the user is trying to find the appropriate control.

Controls should be between 900mm and 1200mm above the floor. The controls inside the car should be on a side wall, at least 400mm in from the door wall, so that a wheelchair user can reach sideways to operate them. It can help all users to have a second set of controls by the side of the door.
