Around 4.5 million adults currently hold gym memberships in the UK, with an increasing number of people joining. Gyms and leisure centres can be great places to keep fit or relax, provided the correct Health and Safety standards are met. It is the owner of the establishment who is under a duty to provide a safe environment for its members and visitors. Unfortunately, this duty is not always upheld and, as a result, accidents can occur, some of which resulting in severe injuries.
