Although health and safety is not a subject people think about when shopping, in 2005/06 the retail industry reported 13,000 work related accidents to the UK Health and Safety Executive. Over 2000 of these accidents were classified as major injuries such as fractures. These arise from risks to consumers including Slips and Trips and additional risks to employees including Manual Handling and Violence to Staff. 

Retail organisations must ensure that that health and safety is integrated into their business planning, as the costs associated with accidents can have a dramatic effect on sales and profits. 

At Safety Management Consultancy Ltd we have an established reputation for providing health and safety training and consultancy solutions to the Retail industry. Our expertise has helped clients such as Taskers Sports establish health and safety management system, provide training to staff and introduced inspection regimes to ensure the retail experience is a safe experience. We have also delivered NEBOSH courses to retail organisations including Bodycare and QVC.

SMC delivered an exceptional Health and Safety course that was both informative and enjoyable. We would highly recommend SMC to any other company. Daniel Blackledge, Company Co-ordinator, Bodycare
