Are we covered for company gym injuries?
Our company has a gym in its Sydney workplace, which all employees can use. Does our workers’ compensation policy cover any injuries or fatalities that occur due to accidents in the gym?
If your business has an internal gym that employees use as part of their employment, then any injury sustained while using the gym (other than by reason of misconduct) is likely to be covered by Workers’ Compensation. However, you should review the processes you have in place to ensure you are satisfied that staff are fit to use the gym and are trained in use of any equipment.
