The retail industry is a major employer in the UK, employing around 3 million people. Retail workers may not be exposed to the same risks experienced by those in construction or industrial environments, however, retail workers are still recorded regularly as absent from work because of an accident in the workplace.
We can help you develop a Health and Safety plan for your stores. A risk assessment is a legal obligation under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, and if a company has more than five employees, it needs to be written down.
We can assist by identifying risks to your staff within the retail environment.
