Slips, Trips And Falls Are The #1 Cause Of Retail Employee Injuries

Retail workers are subject to an environment where exposure to spills, high volumes of traffic, uneven floors, cluttered aisles and elevated shelves are common. According to 2,100 retail staff were injured while working from 2020 to 2021.

There are many risks that retail staff are exposed to daily. The most common are:

  • Slip, trips and fall accidents, 
  • Musculoskeletal injuries, such as back pain.
