business holiday safetyMany small business owners depend upon the holiday season for its end-of-year business boost. Holiday shopping brings a large increase in foot traffic which leads to boosted sales. To attract the spike in sales, businesses use eye-catching holiday decorations, announce special sales and hire additional (usually temporary) staff to create a festive atmosphere and cater to this influx of customers.

Because they are new to your operation and procedures, seasonal employees usually present the highest risk. In fact, some of these injuries could cause them to be absent from work.
