Backroom and Stocking Safety in the Retail Industry Thumbnail
For Multiple Users
Working in the retail industry is generally seen as a very safe occupation with a low risk of injury. The truth is, however, that work-related injuries and illnesses are very common among retail workers. In fact, according to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health the retail and wholesale industry has the second-highest rate of nonfatal injuries and illnesses of any industry sector. Musculoskeletal disorders, falls, cuts, and injuries from accidents involving vehicles and machinery are all too common in retail and grocery settings, particularly in the back room, stock room, or loading and unloading area. This course is designed to give the learner an overview of the hazards common to stocking duties and working in the backroom area of a retail or wholesale store. The course also provides techniques for safe lifting and safe stacking and moving of loads. This course is designed for all employees working in a retail or grocery environment. Employers may also be interested in the following related courses: Back Injury Prevention in the Retail Industry, Ladder Safety in the Retail Industry, and Backroom Safety for Supermarkets.
