PRIMARK employees have exposed the six dangers lurking behind the scenes that you’d never think about while shopping.
And it turns out that staff at the fast fashion retailer’s stores are constantly scanning the shop floor to keep shoppers safe.

Womenswear worker Karen cited “hangers on the floor” as her biggest health and safety gripe.
Used to suspend garments on rails, hangers create a major slip risk when lying around on the floor.
Karen explained that the team at Primark “pick them up as soon as they see them” to keep the shop floor safe.
Similarly, till worker Shirley cited hangers as the biggest issue in her department.
Primark separates clothes from the hangers at the till to recirculate the plastic back into the company.
But that means the “bins” tasked with storing hangers can easily get full and, in the worst case scenario, overspill.
That puts colleagues working on the tills at risk of slipping.
Sally on health and beauty revealed there’s even a FIRE risk on Primark’s shop floor.
The beauty department, famed for its dupes of high-end products, stocks a number of flammable products.
Sally is tasked with “storing them in ventilated cabinets” to reduce the likelihood of a fire.
Heidi on the visual merchandising team revealed that, as her work includes a lot of ladder usage, she’s at risk of falling off.
And, just as customers don’t want to get squashed from a falling body, Heidi doesn’t want to do the squashing.
The creative colleague explained that she has someone “spot” her to prevent any shop floor accidents.
Ann, who works on Gloucester Primark’s ground floor fitting rooms, revealed the biggest risk in her department is long clothes not being pegged to the hangers properly.
Stockroom handler Luke added that “palettes in the walkway” is his health and safety gripe because a clear path needs to be apparent for staff to navigate the backend of the store.
