Safety Tips for Retailers

For all of you in the retail industry you may be interested that OSHA just released an OSHA Fact Sheet on Crowd Management Safety Tips for Retailers, which can be viewed at www.osha.gov/OshDoc/data_General_Facts/Crowd_Control.pdf

This three page fact sheet provides information on planning for a large sales event, pre-event set up and finally the sales event.

Unfortunately, there have been employee deaths due to large, uncontrolled crowds at major sales events. So if you are a retailer and expecting to have a “big” event, take a moment to review the OSHA fact sheet.
