ENSURING CHILDREN’S SAFETY IN SUPERMARKETS

Last year, 401 kids were injured by trolley falls in New Zealand, resulting in concussions, dental injuries, soft tissue damage and cuts. On the whole, claims cost taxpayers over $37,000. Hoping to avoid further accidents, some supermarkets are taking action, displaying large safety posters asking customers to restrain their children.
While most Foodstuffs’ supermarkets already use special baby seats and safety messages, the company is considering placing additional signs in all its Pak’nSave, New World and Four Square stores.
