Shopping is big business in the UK. According to recent Government figures, 2.77 million people work in the retail sector, in firms of all shapes and sizes.

If you are one of them, then your employer is legally required to protect your health, safety and welfare. If he does not, and you are injured as a result, your employer could face prosecution for breaching health and safety rules, and you could be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries.

The most common hazards faced by shop workers include:

  • Slips and trips
  • Lifting heavy objects
  • Falling objects
  • Defective equipment
  • Dangerous machinery
  • Work-related violence

Risks like these should be identified by your employer and measures put in place to reduce them as much as possible.

The risk assessment should also identify the hazards faced by customers and other people, such as suppliers, who are visiting the shop premises. These third parties may also have a claim against the retailer if they are injured through no fault of their own while in the shop.
