Injuries Due To Falling Merchandise
Retailers call it “high stacking”—it’s the custom big-box stores have of vertically stacking crates and flats of merchandise in store aisles, sometimes as high as 20 feet. The practice is convenient for the store because it eliminates the need for a back room or warehouse.
However, those stacks of merchandise sometimes come tumbling down. When they do, the injuries can be terrible and even fatal.
