Plan for a safe Black Friday

2 of 7

Plan ahead

• Hire additional staff and security
• Clear indoor and outdoor walking surfaces of defects and debris
• Ensure workers are properly trained to handle the event, and practice the event ahead of time
• Set up barricades or rope lines well in advance and at least 20 feet to the side of entrances instead of right in front of entrances
• Display prominent signage to inform shoppers of safety and shopping procedures
• Locate sale items throughout the store to prevent overcrowding
• Designate an employee to contact local emergency responders if necessary
