Ireland Active safe operation checklist for facilities- #InSafeHands

Since the Government announcement on the reopening of the Leisure, Health & Fitness sector, facilities have been working tirelessly to safeguard the health & wellbeing of members, staff and the general public in their preparations for reopening commencing from the 29th June.

Ireland Active has developed checklists and social media resources as part of our ‘In Safe Hands’ campaign to highlight the sectors continued commitment to high levels of cleanliness and hygiene. As an industry that prides itself in the upholding of standards, through the Ireland Active National Quality Standard Award, these additional resources help to build confidence with the public as they return to physical activity in their community. The resources are based on the Ireland Active’s recommended framework for safe operation. The communications campaign led by Ireland Active will encompass social media and materials to help facilities demonstrate their commitment to maintaining standards.

We encourage our members to join in the communication of our messaging that gyms, leisure, health & fitness facilities are safe by sharing your safety, return to exercise content. Some suggestions include;

  • Walk through video of facility highlighting hygiene and safety protocols
  • Cleaning regimes and signage showcase
  • Demonstration of good cleaning practice when using equipment
  • Recommencement of classes and operations in line with Ireland Active Framework for safe operation

Tag Ireland Active in your social media content with the hashtag #InSafeHands

The Framework for Safe Operation is available to all businesses within the industry, while the Safe Operations Checklist and resources are exclusively available to Ireland Active members.
Ireland Active members who complete the Safe Operations Checklist will have the opportunity to download and display branded assets to show they are adhering to strict industry reopening standards.
