Common accidents involving shop workers
There are many people in the UK employed in the retail sector, from shop assistants, to those who stock shelves, and those who work at checkouts and so on. Just as a customer can make a claim for personal injury compensation so can shop workers who are injured in their workplace, as long as they can prove that the accident or injury was not caused because of them.
Slips, trips and falls can occur anywhere, and if liquid or litter is dropped in a shop, and not cleaned up, then an accident can occur. The spillage or litter should be cleaned up as quickly as possible and warning signs should be placed around the slippery area until the floor is dry. All areas on a shop premises should be clear of obstacles, including those areas used by staff only. Regular checks should be made to ensure that safety regulations are adhered to.
Goods, whether in a store room or on display should be stacked safely, so that the likelihood of someone being injured by a falling object is kept to a minimum. Head injuries can occur if you are hit by a falling object and these can vary in severity. No goods should be badly stacked so that safety is not jeopardized.
Injuries can also be caused by colleagues, as the result of a practical joke, or because someone has accidentally pushed a cage or trolley into you. An employer could in some instances like this, be held responsible.
