How to make a shop safe for employees and when to make an accident at work compensation claim as an employee
When it comes to running a successful business, you must always think about your customers. However, it is also important that you make your employees important as well, as if you neglect their needs and safety then you risk the entire operation.
When you are running a store, you need to be as careful with your employees health as you can, and think two steps ahead to work out what could go wrong and how you can prevent this happening so that you store runs as smoothly as it can. Here are some tips for looking after your employees in your store.
- Train employees. Employees shouldn’t start their first full day at work until they have undergone enough training to make them comfortable in the store, and so that they know where everything is and what to do if something goes wrong.
- Employ enough staff. When staff members are extremely busy and stressed you cannot expect them to be able to keep an eye on everything and fix problems right away. If you have enough people working at once then any issues should be easy to sort out between them.
- Encourage staff to call management If necessary. If a customer is angry or something serious has gone wrong let your staff know that they should go straight to a manager to get the situation resolved. It is far more dangerous for staff to try to deal with the situation on their own than to get someone else to come and help.
- Be aware of the danger of customers. Sometimes employees will have to deal with angry or dangerous customers. Have training which tells staff what to do if they feel that a customer is a danger to themselves or other customers, and having security staff to deal with these people is also useful.
