(May 8, 2012) A new Risk Control Communiqué on Fitness Facility Use by School Staff has been released by Glatfelter Public Practice. Schools promote employee wellness in a variety of ways such as health screenings, preventative medicine and fitness incentives. Some school districts may negotiate group discount rates at local health clubs for the benefit of their staff while others offer fitness centers as part of the physical education program and allow access to school staff. Although this can be a low cost benefit and another method to encourage healthy lifestyles, there are consequences to consider and risk management steps to take beforehand. This communiqué addresses possible benefits and risks to consider.
