Keeping Your Retail Staff Safe: Essential PPE Solutions from Mallcom

by Suman Pal Industrial Safety Consultant
The retail industry thrives on customer interaction, but making sure you create a welcoming environment and keep your employees safe can be a challenge. That’s where Mallcom, a leading provider of personal protective equipment (PPE), comes in. We offer a comprehensive range of PPE solutions specifically designed to protect your retail employees and provide a safe working environment.

Common Retail Risks:

Cuts and scratches: From sharp objects like utility box cutters to shelves, cuts and scratches are common concerns.

Slips, Trips and Falls: Stretching, uneven flooring and carrying heavy objects can increase the risk of slips and falls.

Dust and allergens: Dust in dusty environments or handling can cause allergies or respiratory irritation.

Lifting Injuries: Handling heavy objects can cause back pain and muscle strain.

Physical confrontation: Unfortunately, retail employees can sometimes face aggressive behavior from customers.


Mallcom offers PPE solutions to effectively manage these risks:

Hand protection: Cut-resistant gloves protect against cuts and scratches, while anti-slip gloves reduce the risk of slips and falls.

Footwear: Non-fall shoes with good traction ensure safe access to potential hazards.

Respiratory Protection: Dust masks or respirators protect workers from exposure to dust and allergens, especially in stock rooms or dusty environments.

Back Support: Back straps provide support and help prevent lifting injuries when handling heavy objects.

De-escalation Training and Protective Equipment: MALLCOM can connect you with resources for de-escalation training to help employees deal with potentially chaotic situations. In addition, we offer protective vests and other safety gear for added safety.
