Condensed Version & Bottom Line:

Treadmills in health/fitness facilities help keep people physically active, fit, and healthy. However, a serious risk of injuries resulting from falling off treadmills can occur that can be caused by various sources of hazards. Health/fitness facility operators can satisfy their duty to protect the health and safety of their members by implementing effective risk management strategies to control and monitor the hazards and minimize the associated risk of injuries and subsequent legal liability.
