Supermarkets are retail grocery stores that have more than 5,000 square feet of floor area. They have large open areas without fire cut-offs and extremely combustible or highly damageable contents with blank wall construction. This makes it difficult to fight fires from outside the building except from the front. There are extensive electrical requirements that place extreme demands on the electrical wiring. Another hazard in most supermarkets is large amounts of trash and waste materials that accumulate. Liability hazards are less serious than fire hazards but issues such as congested aisles, overstacked displays or shelves, poor lighting, and the physical condition of parking areas and sidewalks are present. The products liability hazards of foreign objects in prepared foods and spoilage of food in dairy and refrigerated areas must be considered.
