Throughout 2020, gyms and fitness centers have been a debated and constantly adapted entity in the United States. As organizations that make money on memberships and high traffic within their buildings, it is no surprise that there have been pushes for them to open from both the business and consumer side, but also push back due to health concerns.
With the onset of the green phase in PA masks, sanitation stations, hand washing and social distancing have become the norm in public places. With these increased restrictions and safety precautions the need for health and safety signs within gyms has skyrocketed!
What are Health and Safety Signs?
Health and safety signage helps to facilitate education and provides visual reminders to staff and visitors in your workplace. As an employer, you have a duty of care for your employees and visitors to ensure you have taken the appropriate steps for their health, well being and safety.
Everything from hand washing signs, sanitation reminders, area rules, safety instructions, mask mandates and social distancing reminders are popular components of any COVID-era gym sign package. Custom made health and safety signs can include branding or can be a standard model allowing for endless possibilities!
Why is a sign company writing about Gyms?
What differentiates a home gym from a local gym? What differentiates the 4 gyms that exist in your hometown? All have machines, weights, classes etc. In order to drive business gyms must differentiate themselves from the competition and they do this with their branding.
Branding encompasses the logo, tagline, colors, shapes and the general mentality of the gym. When you think of Planet Fitness the line that comes to mind is “Judgment Free Zone.” Planet Fitness has established itself as the gym for the average consumer.
