Retail employees face increased workplace danger throughout holiday season.

Our staff is already excited about shopping on “Black Friday.” This is the day following Thanksgiving when retailers kick off big sales promotions. Expect stores to be packed with people looking for bargains!

Here is a reminder about the dangers retail employees face during the holiday season. Safety in the workplace should always come before company profits!

Large crowds present a risk of trampling. We ask retailers to establish safety guidelines for pre-event setup, crowd management, and emergency response. Planning goes a long way to avoiding work accidents.

Sometimes the frantic pace of retail is a hazard all by itself. Stress from dealing with irate and rude customers can be overwhelming. Having enough trained staff can make all the difference.

Retail employees are also expected to lift and carry heavy items. Climbing ladders to retrieve stock is common. Watch out for physical injury to knees, shoulders, and spine. We recommend learning about proper lifting techniques.

It is also common for retailers to hire temporary seasonal workers. All employees should get the same training and protection.

Michigan Workers Comp Lawyers never charges a fee to evaluate a potential case. Our law firm has represented injured and disabled workers exclusively for more than 35 years. Call (844) 201-9497 for a free consultation today.
