Hazards in retail

Hazards in the retail environment are very real both on and off of the shop floor. In the store itself the element of risk is featured in any fixtures and fittings displaying products. Through wear and tear these fixtures could fall on to someone or become a trip hazard.

Other shop floor hazards can be spillages which are not communicated to team members as well as electrical equipment including tills.

Behind the scenes an accident at work in Stratford-on-Avon can occur by stock falling from overfilled shelves in the stockroom or an employee falling over an object which has been placed in the corridor. Any one of these accidents could be a claim for compensation.

An accident at work in Stratford-on-Avon in retail

Having an accident in a retail environment means that there may be additional steps in making a claim. Many retail companies have their own version of an accident report form. This usually contains basic contact information plus details about the accident itself. When making a claim for compensation it would be useful to have this document to support the claim.

Having eye witnesses will also prove to be useful and having both colleagues and customers in the vicinity will mean that there should be at least a few who saw what happened. Just by having the contact details of these people can really benefit the case at a later date.
