While you may not think of grocery stores as hazardous places, you may be surprised at how many ways you could get hurt in one. Of course, employees and managers usually do a good job at keeping a safe environment, but when they fail to do their duties, people could get seriously hurt. So, what could happen?
One of the most common ways people get hurt in supermarkets is by falling. If a spill is not cleaned up quickly by store staff, or “wet floor” signs are not put up after a floor is mopped, then customers are much more likely to fall. Also, bunched up floor mats at store entrances and exits are very likely to cause a fall.
People may not think about damaged shopping carts, but if they are broken they could cause customers to get cut. Along the same lines, if store shelves are not properly maintained then people could get cut or hurt from items falling off of the shelves.
Cleaning chemicals should be used by store employees only and properly put away when they are not in use. If they aren’t they could cause harm to customers, particularly children, if they get into them.
While we know it is not common, if a store fails to dispose of old and expired food items, and people purchase them, they could cause their customers to become ill.
We don’t want to overstate just how important it is that supermarkets ensure that their parking lots are safe and secure. The pavement should not be uneven or cracked or people could trip and fall. Also, the whole property should be well lit when they are open at night so the area is not prone to criminal activity.
