ON-DEMAND: Accidents, Active Threats, and Attitudes

Navigating Hazards to Keep Customers and Teams Safe

Presented April 20, 2022

While smash-and-grabs, active threats, and pandemic fallout have dominated the headlines, the slips and falls, merchandise risks, and hazardous materials opportunities are even more common—and collectively all of these events contribute to the liabilities that face everyone in retail and can have significant impact on the bottom line.

It takes a communal effort and a shared mindset across the entire organization to make safety the number one priority for customers and coworkers. Simply making a statement on safety or writing a good policy is not nearly enough. Engaging the associates to make them an active advocate is key, but it takes creativity to capture and retain the focus on safety and keep it front-of-mind on the frontline. Watch this discussion with two industry leaders who live and breathe safety as they share the successes and lessons learned to drive success in keeping stores safe.
