If you work in a grocery store, then you are well aware that risk is always present in your work environment. Due to their unique operations, grocery stores are victims of many risks that other retail businesses simply do not face. However, being aware of the most common risks that are present and implementing innovative solutions can help your grocery store reduce risk. Let’s take a closer look at some of these common risks and how your grocery store can properly prevent them.
The Most Common Risks in Grocery Stores
One of the most common and dangerous risks present in grocery stores is contaminated food products. Whether your store serves buffet-style food, ready-to-go meals, or simply stores food in freezers and coolers, there is a chance that your food safety is being compromised. Controlled temperature devices can malfunction, food can be stored at improper temperatures, and cooked food can be prepared incorrectly.
Another common risk grocery stores face is slip and fall injuries. This risk is present for both customers and employees, as surfaces both on your main floor and employee-only premises can become slippery. Not only is this an extremely unfortunate situation for the injured person, but it is also unfortunate for grocery stores as they have to handle payouts and workers’ compensation claims.
Lastly, grocery stores have to deal with the risk of shoplifting. Although they do not carry highly valuable products like TVs and other expensive items, the risk of theft is still present. Due to limited security systems and convenient self-checkout lanes, handling theft can be difficult for many grocery stores.
