PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- In the aftermath of several recent convenient store attacks, a federal report showed how dangerous the convenient store industry truly is.
Between 2005 and 2010, it found 26-percent of those killed on the job worked at either convenience or liquor stores.
In non-fatal cases, store clerks represented a full fifth of those hurt on the job nationwide.
"Between the hours being late, the neighborhood where it's at, and the stuff we sell... it all factors in there," said Rocky Aranki, Owner of Liquor Wheels.
In response to those cases, the feds offered several safety suggestions, including using door detectors at entrances, putting cash registers in view of public windows, and controlling how much money is in a store at any time.
Each recommendation is up to certain states and businesses to follow.
Violence is believed to be one of the main reasons why there is currently a 54-percent turnover rate within the convenience store industry.
