An occupational hazard is a hazard experienced in the workplace. Occupational hazards can encompass many types of hazards, including chemical hazards, biological hazards, psychosocial hazards, and physical hazards.
Occupational hazards in exercises and workout in the gym are:
There are people out there who call themselves personal fitness trainers and instructors with minimal, outdated, or no qualifications.”
Ask to see certificates and degrees and ensure they are current.
Hundreds of people may use the gym’s equipment every day. That can cause wear and tear to the equipment, which could lead to malfunction and risks to users. Some facilities and equipment malfunction includes:
Ask the gym staff how often equipment is assessed and repaired, and speak up if you see something that’s broken.
Clients may choose the wrong exercises or use the improper form. Some of the practices and behaviors includes:
Know your limits and know your body better than anyone. If you have special risks or conditions — such as a bad back, high blood pressure, recent surgery tell the trainer so he or she can tailor your exercise program to your specific needs.
Jumping, running, and moving around various objects in the gym can increase the risk of tripping and falling.
Be aware of the surroundings. Watch for items that you might trip over — such as a water bottle, hand weight, piece of equipment, sweatshirt, or even a loose set of keys. Then move them to a safer location. Be especially careful in wet areas around showers, pools, and hot tubs, where you’re more likely to slip and fall.
5. Sprains and strains
Trying to lift too much weight, using poor technique, overdoing your workouts, and stretching incorrectly can lead to sprains and strains.
If you are questioning whether you can safely complete a movement, drill, or exercise, it’s probably best to back off in order to ensure you don’t push too hard and injure yourself. If something doesn’t feel right, stop what you’re doing immediately. Then ask for ice, elevate and rest the injured body part, and apply compression to minimize swelling. Tell a gym staff person exactly what happened and document everything.
Germs and bacteria are found everywhere, including gyms. Fungi, bacteria, and viruses are common in wet areas such as showers and swimming pool decks. Sweat left to dry on equipment is also a breeding ground for bacteria.Bacteria can also thrive on used towels on locker room floors, weights, sweaty cardio machines, and benches that members sit on between workouts. Some infections result from stretching mats not disinfected and mould build -up in the shower sealant
It is clear that some people who participate in exercise training will develop injuries to their bones, muscles, and joints. Structural abnormalities, sudden increases in training intensity, and types of equipment used are likely to be related to injury risk.
8. Sudden Death
Obviously, the most serious complication from an exercise program is sudden death. This is, fortunately, a rare occurrence. Individuals who regularly participate in exercise have a lower risk of dying from a heart attack. There is, however, also evidence that suggests a higher risk of dying during exercise than during sedentary activities. When one considers the total risk of sudden death over a 24-hour period, regular exercisers are much less likely to experience this catastrophe. Virtually all individuals who drop dead suddenly have advanced coronary heart disease.
