The Retail and Wholesale industry is generally perceived as a dynamic and fast-moving sector and it involves a plethora of stakeholders such as customers, employees, suppliers, contractors and construction and maintenance workers. Similarly, a Retail and Wholesale working environment is exposed to a variety of Health, Safety and Environmental hazards such as:

  • Indoor air quality and pollution

  • Repetitive motion
  • Lifting, carrying and standing
  • Racking systems and maintenance
