As the festive season approaches, many people find that they’re doing a bit more shopping than usual. If you’re planning some extra visits to the shops, you need to be careful. It’s likely to be crowded – and the winter weather brings its own risks, of course.

Watch out for those shopping trip hazards
Here are a few tips that could help you to avoid getting injured in an accident when you’re out shopping:
1) Be vigilant in the car park. Some drivers don’t look where they’re going, and car parks can be crowded with cars and pedestrians. If you need to cross to get to the shops, look both ways before proceeding.
2) Wear comfortable shoes with good grips. Even if you’re going to a covered centre, you might have to walk on some pavement outside, which could be icy and cause you to slip.
3) Look out for wet floors from spillages or water trailed in by people’s footwear. These can cause you to slip, too – and you might fall and sustain a severe injury.
4) A lot of restocking of shelves goes on in the run-up to Christmas, so there might be obstacles in the aisles of the shops you visit. Keep your eyes peeled for these – they could cause you to trip and fall.
5) Don’t walk too close to the shelves as you browse. Something might fall off and land on your foot – or your head.
