Speaker and Health Club Insurance Expert Ken Reinig Recommends Training Wheels

Ken Reinig, speaker and health club insurance expert, explains what he means by training wheels and suggests they provide security and stability in a gym or club.

Lakewood, Co: December 5, 2016– Ken Reinig, well-known risk management specialist, posted a new blog on his website entitled “Employees are Members Too and They Must Sign a Waiver.” Mr. Reinig takes protecting club owners seriously as he encourages a hard line approach in his latest blog.

Reinig writes, “One of the perks that you, as a club owner provide to your employees and independent contractors is that they can work out in your facility pretty much anytime that they want to.” He continues adding, “Your workers’ compensation insurance covers you and your employees should they injure themselves in the scope of their employment. However, what would happen if they injure themselves when they are “off the clock”?”

According to Reinig, “Although accidents involving employees working out on their own time are rare, they do occasionally happen.” “Equipment malfunction, slip and fall incidents in wet areas, and trainers who do stupid things when no one is watching,” says Reining, “are all possible scenarios. These are the kinds of conditions that contribute to and can result in employee related, off-the-clock injuries.”
