Holiday Season Retail Safety Checklist

Just because Christmas is over does not mean retail store owners can shelf their concern for in-store safety. The National Retail Federation cites the Saturday following Christmas (known as Super Saturday) as one of the top 10 busiest shopping days of the year, most likely fueled by customers who are making returns. The potential for danger lingers through the new year and into spring as unpredictable and sometimes severe weather also threatens to make premises wet and slippery. To ensure customer safety while also focusing on limiting your liability, follow this Holiday Season Retail Safety Checklist. Published by the editors of the Umbrella Bagger Blog, this guide provides an overview of planning, executing, and managing events in a way that maximizes safety for both customers and employees.
