Do you need to make a ‘no win, no fee’ Wychavon compensation claim after working in an electrical store?
Although any type of employee can potentially suffer an accident in the workplace, working with electrical items can bring a range of hazards. In order to allow customers to see the latest technologies, most electrical stores have products switched on and on show. As well as being able to look at the products, potential customers can normally try them out as well.
However, if any shop unit is going to have tens or hundreds of electrical products plugged in at once, they must ensure that the electrical system can handle it. If, for example, they simple attempted to use adaptors in order to plug in numerous machines, they could risk overloading the circuit and shorting the products. This could potentially be dangerous, particularly if any electrical items were to overheat.

If a member of staff was to attempt to unplug anything at this point, they could suffer a serious injury or possibly get burned.
