What are the potential hazards at Coles supermarkets?
Coles are known for their large supermarkets. The number and variety of products found in one store can potentially lead to several different in-store hazards.
Coles like other business, has a responsibility to maintain a safe store. Some common grocery store safety issues that might present themselves at Coles stores include:
- Faulty refrigeration and freezer cases leaking water
- Food debris in produce areas
- Discarded boxes near the self-bagging counter
- Wet floors near the store’s entrance and exit from rain or snow
- Slick aisles if products leak from packages
When these kinds of safety concerns are present in a supermarket, they have the potential to cause slip and fall accidents if they are not identified and corrected
