While there are typically lots of different ways to stay in shape, our options have become somewhat limited during this pandemic. When people can afford it, they’ve often preferred to buy their own home exercise equipment. If you’ve been considering this option, or if you already own exercise equipment, please be sure to think about potential safety hazards.
Since children are always the most important consideration when it comes to safety, think about ways that they may hurt themselves around your exercise equipment. In many cases, it may be best to simply keep your exercise equipment in a room that can be locked, preventing children from accessing it entirely. If not, you might consider unplugging exercise equipment when it’s not in use, and rolling the power cord up so that kids can’t play with it. One last thing to think about is any potential pinch points or moving parts that could do some serious damage.
