If you have had the misfortune to have been hurt or injured whilst shopping then you’ll be fully aware how an injury can not only ruin a spot of retail therapy but it can have long and far reaching consequences. These days anyone going shopping sets aside an entire day.
Modern shopping centres are vast indoor centres, often covering at least two storeys and are home to hundreds of retail outlets. Most shopping centres are traffic free and they are enclosed so the weather cannot mar a shopping expedition. Because they are protected from the elements and free of motor vehicles we tend to view them as safe places.
This assumption is usually correct. Shopping centres are clean and airy facilities which are well designed to ensure that visitors to them fully enjoy their experience and can focus on the important task or making as many purchases as possible within an ambient and welcoming environment.
However, there are times when shopping can become a dangerous leisure activity. For example: over flowing litter bins can cause debris to accumulate on the floor space. Poorly lit stairwells can mask an uneven step or floor surface. Floor surfaces can become wet or slippery due to spillages and cause danger to the unsuspecting shopper.
Even retail outlets can become dangerous if they are not carefully monitored. Point of sale material which is not securely fastened can come adrift causing nasty bruises and cuts. Discarded merchandising tools and equipment such as ladders and screwdrivers can cause nasty injuries if they are left lying about the shop without being securely put away.
