Hurt at work in Stirling due to lack of health and safety?
If you work in a shop then you are not in as much danger of being hurt at work in Stirling as if you worked in construction or with heavy machinery. However, there are plenty of hazards in shops which many employees may not even think about and it is these risks that are most likely to cause accidents. It’s simply because if you are not paying attention you open yourself up to them.
You should have full health and safety training when you start in any job, and this will tell you what you need to know about staying safe. However in some shops this may be cut short, or not be as in depth as it should be to keep you completely safe. Here are some of the hazards you should be looking out for, so that you can learn them and avoid being hurt at work in Stirling.
