Preventing Injuries Caused by Falling Merchandise

There are many things that business owners can do to prevent falling merchandise:

  • Do not exceed weight limits of shelving and display cases
  • Set up display cases and shelving correctly
  • Check for structural integrity of displays
  • Attach tall shelves and units to the wall securely
  • Secure merchandise on shelves correctly
  • Provide ladders and steps for employees to reach merchandise easily
  • Use lower shelves and display cases for safety
  • Periodically check the business premises for dislodged merchandise and other dangerous conditions and react appropriately
  • Place signs up warning customers to get help reaching items on high shelves
  • Place heavier and bulkier items closer to the ground

While business owners are not legally obligated to do all of the above, they are expected to take reasonable precautions such as these to keep employees and patrons safe. When business owners fail to do so and injuries result, victims may have a legal claim.
