Today we are joined by Ken Reinig, speaker and health club insurance expert. Ken focuses his attention on the variety of controversial issues that club owners must be knowledgeable about in order to reduce exposure to lawsuits. Ken insures over 3,000 health clubs nationwide, and his company also handles the risk management side of things. This includes everything from what type of waivers you should be using, how to fill out an incident report, and sexual harassment training. Risk management is about having a procedure in place for when a lawsuit is presented.
