Toronto, Canada, June 25, 2015 – MVR Cash and Carry (www.MVRWholesale.com), a family-run wholesale supplier for businesses and restaurants across the Greater Toronto Area, is announcing its new safety initiatives, including the creation of a safety committee and improved security measures to protect both customers and employees.
“The store isn’t riddled with danger, but given that it is effectively a warehouse, there are certain extra measures and precautions that need to be taken to ensure that customers have a safe and pleasant shopping experience,” notes Rob Commisso, one of the three brothers who owns and operates MVR Cash and Carry.
The company’s six-member safety committee’s initial focus will be on labelling and equipment before broadening their scope.
“There is a lot of large packaging to deal with, as items are sold in bulk,” Commisso elaborates. “In a way, employees need to have similar equipment to construction workers. Steel-toed boots go a long way in protecting staff, and there is also a full survey of the store underway to ensure any potential hazards are labeled.”
The committee will also be responsible for periodic controls of the store and for making use of additional qualifications and training in safety legislation.
“Some of it is just making sure simple measures are taken, like having proper ladders available. Other times, it’s monitoring for loose nails or tripping hazards and correcting any such concerns before they become a hazard to our customers and workers,” he adds. “The committee will also check to ensure our forklift and dolly operators are balancing their loads correctly.”
“These measures will benefit both MVR employees and customers,” Commisso concludes “They’re meant to ensure everyone has a safe and pleasant experience while working or shopping at the facility.”
