ACSM's Health & Fitness Journal®: January - February 2024 CEC Course #3: Conducting a Risk Management Audit


By JoAnn M. Eickhoff-Shemek, PhD, FACSM, FAWHP and Ron Betta, CFSM, ACSM-CPT 

From a safety perspective, risk management (RM) can be defined as a “proactive administrative process that will help minimize legal liability exposures facing exercise professionals and fitness facilities”. Legal liability exposures are situations that create a risk of injury or reflect noncompliance with federal, state, and local laws. RM strategies that minimize injuries from occurring in the first place are referred to as loss prevention strategies. Fitness facilities have faced negligence and wrongful death lawsuits for failing to properly carry out medical emergency procedures after an injury. To enhance safety and minimize legal liability, this article provides an RM Audit containing 10 questions designed to assess the effectiveness of your facility’s medical emergency action plan (EAP).
