We know that an accident can really set you back. Accidents that happen at grocery stores often occur because a store employee was negligent in their duties. We know that most stores are safe, but it only takes one careless error to change your life. So, what can happen?
If items are too high on the shelves and there is no employee to help retrieve them, they could fall down and hurt customers. Also, if a broken shelf has heavy items, this could cause a hazardous situation. There are also times when displays are built too high, making them unstable. You see this sometimes with stacked soda and beer displays.
Anytime there is a spill, store employees should work quickly to clean it up. When they do, and anytime they mop, they should put “wet floor” signs up so that customers know that there is a slip risk.
While most stores do a good job at disposing of outdated food, sometimes items slip through the cracks. If these items are sold and consumed, people could become very ill.
You will often see mats at the entrances and exits of stores as well as other locations throughout the store. If these mats are bunched up, worn down, or wet, they could cause customers to fall and injure themselves.
There are some chemicals that should be used only for store cleaning purposes. When they are not in use, they need to be stored properly and away from customers. Also, there are some cleaning items and other chemicals that are for sale that look like candy – making them enticing for children. These items should be stored appropriately so only adults have access to them.
Broken shelves and broken shopping carts can pose laceration risks for customers. Any sharp edges around the store should be fixed immediately.
