Research: "Retailers don't readily divulge their injury data, although they do track cut injuries and damaged merchandise, he said. For example, the Food Marketing Institute, whose members operate 26,000 retail food stores nationwide, about 10 years ago concluded the industry was sustaining approximately $20 billion per year in damaged merchandise, 30 percent of which was caused by box cutters. Being self-insured, retailers use a chargeback system in which they set aside $10,000 to $30,000 for each lost time injury, and this cost comes directly out of a store manager's bottom line. "It makes them very, very motivated to find solutions to cutting their employees"
