What insurance do Gyms need?

When running a health and fitness club there are many things that you need to consider when taking out insurance.

Public Liability

Provides insurance for gym owners if a member of the public is injured or suffers property damage and blames the gym. Public Liability provides the cover for the necessary legal fees associated with defending the gym in this instance. If the business is found to be negligent, any settlement would also be covered by your insurance policy. Gym liability insurance costs can vary. 

Employers' Liability

If you employ staff, whether it is on a full-time, part-time or a voluntary basis, Employers’ Liability is a legal requirement. If a member of staff was to blame the gym for an injury or property damage they have suffered, your insurance for gym policy would cover the costs of defending the gym and the subsequent settlement of the claim.

Buildings & Contents Cover

You can add this to protect your equipment and the building itself against damage caused by instances such as fire, flood and vandalism. To add this cover, just select the exact amount of protection you need on your quote form.

Business Interruption Cover

Should your gym have to close for a period of time due to fire, flood or another disaster, Business Interruption Cover can safeguard your gym against the financial losses associated with being unable to operate for a period of time.
