Although the retail industry as a whole is substantial, the costs to protect a business from injury liability can make quite the dent in profit margins. On average, the costs of employee and customer liability and risk total 0.6% of total sales, which comes to a $ 21 billion price tag to retailers as a whole in the United States. This is a substantial amount for any retail business, big or small, franchised or not. It is therefore imperative to maintain the safety standards of the physical retail space for both employees and customers.
