Working in a shop can be demanding yet rewarding, tiring yet fulfilling. Whenever you start working in a shop you will usually receive in-depth training so you can do your job properly and be in a good position to help customers.
Over time you will become more familiar with the duties you have to do and you will therefore be more relaxed and assured in your role.
We all realise things can happen in life that might cause us injury. However you probably wouldn’t expect to be injured while at work. The majority of people will go through their working lives without being injured at all. However there would be cases where some people might be hurt in some way.
Have you had an accident that could lead to shop staff injury compensation?
While accidents in shops are rare, all kinds of situations could crop up that might potentially lead to a compensation claim. For example you might be injured while lifting and moving stock because you didn’t receive manual handling training on how to do it properly.
You might be hurt simply by tripping or slipping over, or by having a fall. The floor could be wet or slippery, or there may have been an obstacle near the stairs that sent you into a fall.
Thankfully very few shop staff will find themselves in situations like these. Appropriate training, equipment for helping to move stock where required and a clean and tidy workplace should all add up to provide a safe place to work.
