Potential Hazards at the Gym

Gyms can be incredibly dangerous, in part, because they are filled with large and heavy equipment. When this equipment malfunctions due to overuse or poor manufacturing, the person using the equipment is likely to be injured. However, there are other hazards in the gym besides defective equipment, including:

  • Under-trained or negligent management and staff
  • Unclean or unsterilized workout equipment
  • Negligent or careless gym patrons
  • Wet floors

Gym accidents can result in both short-term and long-term injuries, and it is important that those responsible for maintaining a safe gym environment are held accountable when their negligence causes harm to others.
