OSHA urges retailers to take the time to adopt a crowd management plan and follow a few simple guidelines to prevent unnecessary harm to retail employees.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) November 26, 2013
This December, Eagle Mat and Floor Products announces a special sales event for all crowd control rope, stanchion, and retractable belt systems. Purchase crowd control queues online at Eaglemat.com, and receive free shipping and a 100% price match guarantee on all products.
The sales event comes at a time when the U.S. Department of Labor warns retailers that crowd management measures are critical during the major shopping days and sales events of the upcoming holiday shopping season. "The busy shopping season should not put retail workers at risk of being injured or killed," states Dr. David Michaels in a press release published by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). "OSHA urges retailers to take the time to adopt a crowd management plan and follow a few simple guidelines to prevent unnecessary harm to retail employees."
In 2008, an employee at a mega-retailer was trampled to death by crowds who rushed the storefront for a special after-Thanksgiving Day sales event that promised steep price cuts on the season's most popular gifts and gadgets. In the wake of that tragedy, proactive crowd management strategies have become a focal point for Federal safety councils and retailers alike.
A family-owned company, Eagle Mat stands committed to helping retailers create and maintain a safe shopping experience throughout the winter holiday season. All crowd control systems on Eaglemat.com have been reduced to guaranteed low prices, and all online orders will receive free shipping through the month of December. The ropes, stanchions, and retractable belt systems on Eaglemat.com are built to last, featuring selections from industry leading brands like Lawrence Metal and Tensabarrier.
In addition to crowd control queues, OSHA recommends retailers hire additional personnel to assist in crowd management. Retailers are also advised to create and practice emergency response protocols to ensure swift and efficient handling of any incident that may occur.
