Retailers are quite unique in that they not only have to deal with the safety of their staff, but also any customers who come in and out of the premises. This is why having a wide range of safety equipment is essential, no matter how big or small your operation might be.
You might wonder what types of equipment will have the greatest effect in your store – and here are some examples.
Giving customers guidance on where they can and cannot be has many advantages. You may want to direct them where they can queue, or prevent them entering certain rooms.
It’s important not to overburden people with signs, so be selective with which ones are likely to be the most effective inside and outside your store.
In some situations, it might be necessary to block off certain areas entirely. One of the easiest and most effective ways of achieving this is to use a Port-a-guard Pro.
This can be put into place whenever you need it and stored away compactly when you don’t. The concertina effect makes this a product that is always easy to bring out to ensure the safety of your customers.
Moving stock around a retail premises isn’t always easy. Carrying heavy items can cause health problems for staff, and not to mention create hazards for your customers.
A stock trolley means you can transport large and heavy items without too much difficulty and this item has features to make sure it’s extra manoeuvrable.
Sometimes it is necessary to install anti-slip matting, which is where the chequer plate sponge really comes into its own. The surface is bonded to a resistant vinyl sponge base, so you can rest assured it won’t be going anywhere. Not only does it have the ability to prevent trips and falls, but is also offers relief from back, leg and ankle discomfort.
