Wall collapses in Bloomingdale’s

NEW YORK, NY – According to the nypost.com , an employee from Bloomingdale’s in Midtown sustained an injury in an accident on Thursday, January 3, 2019, when a display wall collapsed. The accident took place at about 10:10 in the morning in the store’s flagship shop located on Lexington Avenue.

The victim was a visual merchandising associate who was taken to the New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center where reports indicate he was in stable condition.

A spokesperson from the shop confirmed the reports and said that the employee was “alert” and is being treated for injuries.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), every job has its risks, including retail work. Retail covers a wide range of different jobs, including a department store, warehouse superstore, grocery shops, home centers, gardening shops, and pet shops, among others. Workers who are young, specifically those under the age of 25, have a greater chance of being injured in the workplace than do older and more experienced workers.

The CDC says that there are around 100,000 young people, defined as those between the ages of 16 and 24, miss days of work because of injuries they sustain at their jobs. In some cases, young workers are injured because they did not get proper training. Sometimes these employees do not know the right questions to ask or are too unsure of themselves to ask questions. There are also times when employers request that their workers perform jobs that are dangerous and that they are not allowed by law to perform. It is important that employees know their rights, are properly trained, and that they recognize workplace hazards.
