This article explains the basics of what should be a preliminary of what people should do prior to opening or getting a facility going. This would be safety 101.

CD's curator insight, July 30, 2016 3:45 PM

"Injuries are going to happen in the sports world, or whenever physical activities are involved — there’s no escaping that fact. As a sports facility owner, do you know how your staff would react in the event that one of your clients gets sick or injured while working out or playing at your facility? You not only have a strong moral and ethical imperative to make your customers’ safety a top priority; you also put your business at serious risk if your staff handles even what appears to be a minor an injury the wrong way. This is particularly important when you’re teaching kids, because they see instructors as authority figures and trust them to keep them safe. While I can’t dispense medical advice, I do make sure to keep certain priorities in mind at my own facility as far as safety goes."

Scott G's curator insight, June 24, 2017 1:44 PM

Great suggestions on training your stadium staff on safety.
