In August 2018, WITS hosted “Exercise Equipment Injuries and Claims and Suits – Defending Against Litigation,” a webinar featuring David Herbert, sponsored by CPH & Associates. This content was recently covered in his recent Avoiding Liability blog on our website identifying the importance of regularly inspecting gym equipment to meet industry standards and thus meet legal requirements. Creating equipment records of your regulatory gym equipment inspections may assist in the defense against exercise equipment injury cases but it doesn’t stop there. You cannot simply just inspect gym equipment, you also need to repair and maintain them! If an equipment inspection identifies an issue, you must resolve that issue ASAP or avoid use of that piece of equipment to avoid exercise equipment injury claims and suits.
