Safety in the Gym

In the age of litigation, facility managers need to make sure their facilities are up to date with proper safety equipment. For example, you need to make sure you have proper wall protection that meets AS F2440-04 for impact standards, safety straps on your ceiling-suspended basketball goals and protection for climbing walls. Make sure you contact a reputable manufacturer that can help you meet these goals.
