Abstract

A qualitative pilot study was conducted in Baltimore City with the aim of documenting specific occupational safety challenges of small-scale urban retailers, or "corner store" owners. Semistructured interviews with a small sample (n = 4) revealed significant challenges for owners and workers, and revealed potential areas for occupational health intervention.
