Hazards in Bunnings Shopping Centre Retail Stores
Bunnings stores are generally huge, and stock a broad range of hardware, homewares, tools, building and gardening items to choose from. And with so many different items and aisles, accidents are common not only indoors but in Bunnings car parks.
The warehouse shelves and aisles must be restocked continually, and shoppers are usually more focused on what they’re looking for rather than where they’re going.
Bunnings retailers, like supermarkets and other commercial venues, are responsible for keeping you safe on their premises and in their car parks.
The potential hazards at Bunnings stores include:
Liquid spill in aisles
Debris left on floors
Boxes or bags left in aisles during or after re-stocking
Faulty or stray shopping trolleys that can clash with cars, shoppers or other trolleys.
Wet floors near entry and exits due to rain
Unfortunately, accidents do happen almost every day in Bunnings outlets across Australia and many hazards can cause slip and fall accidents.
