We have recently obtained a new building with various rooms and ample space. The building will be used as a senior center. When it comes to renting or providing space for independent fitness trainers to provide services to their clients, who is responsible/liable if something were to happen? Does the trainer need to provide their own liability insurance? If there are other aspects that we must keep in mind as landlords please let me know, I would like to offer these spaces to people looking to start their fitness services, they might even get some clients from those attending the center.
Hello Gabriel Gabaldon,
You ask a good question. The independent contractor will need to put your facility on their own insurance policy as an “additional insured.” Check with the insurance provider for details and be sure to ask for proof of insurance from the independent contractors.
You show responsibility by taking care of liability issues while helping others; keep up the great work.
