As the Christmas shopping season gathers speed, the Swedish Work Environment Authority says it will be checking conditions in warehouses and parcel pick up points.

The checks are part of a broader initiative looking at workplaces in the online shopping industry that began in August and will continue until the end of next year.

Radio Sweden spoke with Eric Storbjörk, a workplace inspector at the agency, who says the busy time at parcel terminals and shops can lead to accidents or other problems.
