The sports, arts, and recreation industries include anyone who specializes in recreational activities. Sports, for example, are usually defined as any physical activity that is both competitive and physical. However, the definition of what constitutes a sport continues to expand, now including such things as competitive eating and even competitive gaming. Those who work as professionals in this field can be anything from the athletes who perform the sport to managers to those who work own and operate sports-related facilities.
Meanwhile, the arts encompass a vast number of artistic endeavors. Painting landscapes or sculpting may easily be considered art. Professionals in this field often work alone, although many art projects can involve groups of artists working together. Often artists will coordinate with engineers and architects to create public displays, as commissioned by local governments or private businesses. Many professionals in this industry also own and operate their studios or galleries, seeing a lot of foot traffic on a daily basis and selling artwork directly to customers.
Finally, recreational activities are anything that people can enjoy outside of work. While artists and athletes may enjoy their work, recreational facilities exist for people to relax. Such facilities, such as pools, gyms, and recreational centers, are often heavily utilized. Cities, in particular, will often have several forms of recreational centers, employing staff specializing in different types of recreation.
Insurance policies come in handy if you own one of the following types of businesses:
The purchase of insurance for sports, arts and recreation professionals is necessary. While it’s easy to assume that risks are minimal, leaving your business exposed is a situation that is best avoided. In many cases, businesses in this industry will be legally required to own at least some forms of insurance, even if it’s just a Workers Compensation policy. However, those who make their way in this industry should investigate the most common risks associated with their specific segment within the industry, and discover insurance types designed for those specific risks.
For those who have made sports and recreation a way of life, risks like personal injuries and injuries to others can take place. Most of those employed in sports or recreational facilities are well trained in various emergency procedures. These types of facilities often utilize heavy and sometimes dangerous equipment.
Often, people will come in to a gym who simply do not know how to use the workout equipment safely, increasing their risk of injuries. If an injury does occur in a sports or recreational facility due to equipment error, or even user fault, the facility can be held liable. A General Liability Insurance policy can cover this type of issue.
The risk of losing equipment is high, as most equipment related to the sports, arts and recreation industry can be extremely expensive to purchase. This is particularly true for artist and art studios. For any business within this industry, this particular risk is mitigated through the purchase of Commercial Property Insurance.
With so many different types of businesses in this industry, premium costs will vary widely depending on the nature of yours. As with most policies, your rates will likely take into account your location, size, previous claims and any inherent risks associated with your line of work.
