Important Inspections
Tuesday, October 7, 2014

In the past year, there have been numerous news reports of gym and sports equipment failing, and even to the extent of people being injured because of faulty equipment. For those of us at Borgman Athletics a top priority for any sports equipment is preventative action and maintenance to create a safe environment for all involved in the daily goings-on of sports equipment. That’s why we not only install all types of equipment, we offer a multitude of repairs and inspections. We know that for an event to be fun and exciting, all appropriate safety regulations must be followed first.

A gymnasium, the football field, the tennis courts and even the track see a great deal of traffic daily when it comes to sports. Gyms have a long lifespan, and so should the equipment inside the gym, as well as equipment in other areas. That’s why routine inspections should be done on all equipment, including basketball hoops and backstops. Spectators and athletes alike should be able to watch a game, play in the match or run the race with peace of mind and not have to worry about an unsuspecting piece of equipment not functioning or even failing.

Inspections and repairs should be done by professionals, but there are a few measures coaches and instructors alike can include in between scheduled maintenance. The coach or instructor who knows the equipment well can check equipment to see if the equipment is functioning properly. Refer to any guidelines or regulations based on the state you’re in or even the level the athletes are at to see if equipment matches those regulations correctly. If it appears that anything loose needs to be tightened, if there are any belts slipping, if anything is jammed or not operating as it should and if there is anything damaged that needs to be replaced, contact professionals for further inspections and repairs.

Not only are inspections and maintenance vital to all people involved in sports, they are also mandatory for safety requirements. Depending on where the gymnasium is located and what level the players are, there are different requirements per sport and there are different requirements for the positioning and anchoring of all sports equipment. Having athletic equipment that is up to code is a mandatory regulation for insurance companies. Equipment needs to be inspected so insurance companies have proof that every last item is in the right working condition. That’s why it is imperative to have a professional inspect and repair any equipment.

Choosing the right group to inspect your equipment will give your gym and athletes peace of mind during the next sporting event. But choosing any business to inspect equipment won’t do. Borgman Athletics prides ourselves in the installation and inspection jobs we do. When we do a preventative maintenance safety inspection, we provide you with proof of maintenance for liability purposes and Certificate of Completion and Service Review Form following inspection.

Everyone from the spectators to the athletes to the coaches and even the referees should be able to enjoy a sporting event without having to worry about faulty equipment. Inspections should be done regularly to prevent injuries, to keep a gymnasium up to code, and most importantly, to allow the game to proceed.
