Supermarket accident explained

Surprisingly, supermarket accidents are more common than you might think. Wet floors, boxes, trolleys or unstable product stacks can cause a wide range of accidents.

  • Hazards or spillages have to be cleared quickly.
  • Hazards or spillages have to be marked.
  • Equipment that could cause harm has to be maintained properly.
