Why You Need Liability Waivers in The Club Fitness Center

More and more clubs are adding fitness centers to the host of facilities offered to club members based on increased demand. Like all other areas of club operations, it’s important to make sure the right measures are in place to protect the club in case of accidents. One important step is the creation of liability waivers. Liability waivers are important for clubs with fitness facilities because, if well written, they can in most jurisdictions protect the club from liability for injuries resulting from negligence. Being prepared can help the club avoid potential liability and run a safe and successful facility.
