    Survivor guide: The ‘Cyber Monday’ sales

    Cyber Monday sales happens every December just after America’s Thanksgiving weekend. This event started in America but has since become popular in other countries. Whilst it is a safer event than those that happen in store as you do not have to shove or push your way through the crowds there are still certain things you need to be careful of to avoid injuries in the office or wherever you are.

    What types of work injuries can be sustained during Cyber Monday?

    You may not think that there are many work injuries to be sustained whilst on a computer trying to get that bargain in the sales. Although there are not many accidents at work risks there is one work injury in particular which could be sustained, repetitive strain injury.

    In order to get that bargain online you may have to constantly refresh the page or continually press buttons to update details. If you repeat this movement a lot of times over a long time, this is when the risk of getting a repetitive strain injury increases.

    How to help prevent an accident at work

    If you work in an office there are several things you can do to avoid getting a repetitive strain injury both during Cyber Monday and any other time. First of all, make sure you take regular breaks from the computer screen. This will not only avoid any eye strain work injuries but will mean you are less likely to suffer from headaches.

    Also, if you have to carry out the same movements for a prolonged period of time, try to take regular breaks from this to avoid sustaining a repetitive strain injury. If you can add different tasks to your day in between the repetitive movement this will allow certain muscles to rest and reduce the risk of a work injury.

    Survivor guide: Cyber Monday sales

    As soon as December starts, the shops go crazy and there are sales everywhere. This is great news for those looking for a Christmas bargain, but hoards of people rushing around, muddy shoes and slippery floors can be dangerous. If you’re heading out to grab a last minute bargain on Black Friday or staying in to click your way to shopping success on Cyber Monday, take extra care not to slip, trip or fall.

    Navigating the sales on Cyber Monday: preventing accidents in a public place

    Whether you’re marching to a Wi-fi hotspot to beat the online crowds to the best Cyber Monday deals, or rushing into high street stores to buy gifts for your loved ones, it’s advisable to take care and go steady. Sales shopping can be brutal at the best of times, but at Christmas, the intensity seems to go up a notch, with people hurrying around, the potential hazards of ice, rain and snow, and busier shop floors.

    The most common causes of public place slips, trips and falls in the winter months include:

    • slippery floors
    • obstructions in doorways, such as umbrellas and pushchairs
    • wet pavements
    • uneven flooring
    • damaged flooring
    • crowded doorways and stairwells

    Shop and restaurant owners are required to comply with health and safety guidelines to prevent public place accidents; these include:

    • ensuring that floors are well-maintained
    • using warning signs to alert people to wet floors, steps, and potential obstructions
    • using policies to prevent over-crowding, such as limiting the number of people allowed in the shop at any one time
    • carrying out regular risk assessment
    • providing extra staff at Christmas to reduce queues and waiting times

    If you are planning to shop, you can also reduce your risk of being injured by wearing suitable footwear, watching out for warning signs, and looking where you are going. If you are worried about getting stuck in huge queues, being elbowed by angry shoppers, or hemmed in on packed buses or tubes, why not consider doing your shopping online from the comfort of your own home?

    Slip, trip or fall compensation

    If you’ve been injured in an accident in a public place and it wasn’t your fault, call Accident Advice Helpline on their freephone number – 0800 689 0500 – or take their 30-second online test to find out if you could claim public liability compensation. The claims process is simple and stress-free, and the majority of clients do not have to attend court.
