Conclusion

The best think they could do is put up 'mind your head' signs. The LA fitness The LA fitness have special training for their staff as its a national if not an international company so they would not want for example one of their members being injured and causing a media frenzy about their safety measures because this way they would have a bad image/ reputation this will cause a loss of business, and profits. Water by the pool this might result in someone tripping over and in the worst case falling and drowning in the pool. This is an intolerable risk because it could be fatal. The fitness club has ridges by the pool side these are to prevent slipping. Maybe the club can have staff dry the pool side at interval times sauna there is a possibility of dehydration (if someone falls asleep inside one that is) the club has staff to remove you when your time is up if you ask. This is not enough at all the club should have a timer inside the sauna to let you know how long you've been inside also they should install a panic alarm. Weights not on stand member or staff might drop the weights on the feet when they go to lift from te floor or even hurt their back. This is a substantial risk. The LA fitness have a stand but that's about it they should make it a rule to no put weights back on stand after use. Staff not in gym area this is a serious risk because if there was an emergency and there was no staff around to assist if it could be dangerous maybe even fatal. They should most definitely have a member of staff in the gym area at all times. Both the 147 club and the LA fitness have tried and done something about their risks this shows they try ensure health and safety and security measures at their businesses ?? ?? ?? ??
