In response to your reports about injuries due to goods falling from fixed shelving in supermarkets, I suggest that goods stacked on pallets in supermarket aisles pose a greater risk.


These temporary looking pallets, often stacked high with 'bargains', remain week after week. In addition, the pallets complicate the passage of shoppers with carts.


Secondly, personnel stocking supermarket shelves during open hours pose another risk. While pushing, pulling, turning, elevating, or offloading large payloads on hand-driven trucks, their often hurried drivers either cannot see or ignore customers, intent on shopping. We should limit stocking to after hours.
