Health & Safety Support for Leisure Centres, Gyms and Spas
Leisure Centres, Gyms and Spas offer a wide range of potential risks to both employees and customers alike from general slips, trips and falls, to more specific areas including those around the quality of the water within pools and saunas and the management of chemicals and substances used to ensure water safety.
As the owner or manager of the facility you will be acutely aware of your duty of care to ensure the safety and wellbeing of both your employees and customers, however it can often be helpful to have additional support from an external Health and Safety company, such as Sureteam.
Whether completing an audit of your current procedures, helping with the completion of Risk Assessments or simply providing training to your team, we have a range of practical solutions that can help ensure the safety at your centre.

Main areas for consideration include:
Water quality is critical. Water systems need to be closely monitored and treated regularly. If any water systems have been turned off for a period of time, then you should be taking extra precautions when re-opening.
Slips and trips are one of the most common accidents to occur at work generally, leisure facilities offer significant risk with the use of Gym equipment and an abundance of wet and slippery surfaces. Find out about First Aid Courses here.
Regular testing of water and the correct use of chemicals within Pools, Spas, Steam Rooms or Saunas is vital to ensure the water is safe. Chemicals must also be stored away correctly and a record taken of their use and disposal. Find out more here.
How we can help support you
Health and Safety Audit
Our experienced team of health and safety consultants can be commissioned to undertake a full audit of your health and safety systems. Following this review, we will produce a tailored, comprehensive report which details where the gaps are in your Health and Safety.
Risk assessments of all activities, including those undertaken by employees, must be completed with an assessment of any activity which could affect the safety of persons using the centre. The COVID-19 outbreak also possesses a risk to leisure centres with the volume of traffic and use of equipment.
We can provide your business with ongoing consultancy to ensure you have the proactive support needed to prevent health and safety failures. We will work closely with you to generate straightforward, practical solutions to ensure you’re complying with UK health and safety legislation.
