Retail Grocery Stores: Checklist for Identifying Potential Job-Specific Ergonomics Concerns Mobile App

Retail grocery store employees face a different set of ergonomic risks than office employees. Understanding the risks is the first step in occupational safety and avoiding a work-related injury. Educate yourself and your employees with a mobile app that goes where you do, right on your smartphone or tablet.

The Retail Grocery Stores: Checklist for Identifying Potential Job-Specific Ergonomics Concerns mobile app is made to help you review potential sources of ergonomic concern. Review the most common grocery store tasks, duration, frequency and magnitude of the activity. Job-specific tasks include: cashiering, bagging and carry out, produce stocking, shelf stocking and stockrooms, bakery, meat and deli related tasks.

Injury prevention is an important part of health and safety in the workplace. Common work-related musculoskeletal disorders, carpal tunnel and more, can be avoided by first understanding ergonomic risk factors. Then, take steps to prevent problems such as a limit on repetitive motion, anti-fatigue floor mats, heavy lifting belts and chairs that prevent awkward postures.

Start your ergonomics program by understanding the specific risks in your grocery store. Save, share and send this checklist with the GoCanvas Cloud or convenient PDF files.
