Workers compensation exposures are high due to lifting that can cause back injury, hernias, sprains and/or strains. Floors may become slick, resulting in slips and falls. If confections are made on premises, burns can result from cooking. Employees should be provided with safety equipment, trained on proper handling techniques, and have conveying devices available to assist with heavy lifting. In any retail business, hold-ups are possible so employees should be trained to respond in a prescribed manner.
