Working in retail is physically demanding and fast paced job to have. Although much of the work carried out by retail staff is done behind the scenes, the pace doesn’t stop with many deliveries turning up throughout the day and chasing around after customers on the shop floor.
In any busy working environment a solicitor in Montgomery would point out that there are many hazards which can become more dangerous due to the nature of a retail job role.
Hazards in retail stockrooms
All businesses exist to make money so it can be reinvested into new products and stores. This money, made through sales, involves large quantities of stock which all gets held in some variation of a stockroom.
With bays 6 or 7 shelves high stock can be piled up, sometimes dangerously. Depending on how well the ordering system works there can be times when there is simply too much stock for the store to cope with. This is where a solicitor in Montgomery may be needed.
Accidents happen when there is a presence of negligence or carelessness. By filling shelves with too much stock there is an accident waiting to happen as this stock could easily fall onto an employee.
If this type of incident occurs, the employee could be able to take legal action with help from a solicitor in Montgomery.
