Staying safe in the sauna
Most saunas are clean, hygienic and professionally maintained. They are places where people from all walks of life come to meet, relax, de-stress and enjoy the health benefits of the steam room. But it is important to be aware of the considerable risks present in the sauna environment. Those with heart conditions are not advised to use a hot sauna, and one should not enter a sauna after consuming alcohol. It is important to take time to rest and shower after using a sauna.
Other hazards include the risk of slipping and falling in the sauna, suffering a burn from a hot surface, or cuts and splinters from sharp edges encountered when one is unclothed. It is the responsibility of the sauna management to make sure that the sauna is properly maintained and that regular checks are carried out. Necessary repairs should be acted on immediately, and the highest standards of health and cleanliness should be maintained. Proper advice for sauna use should also be clearly displayed.
Making a compensation claim
If you suffer a sauna injury that you believe is due to the management failing to meet their responsibilities, then you could be entitled to claim compensation. The sauna should be covered by public liability insurance, and it is your right to be compensated for any injury suffered. But please remember – you must be able to prove that your accident was due to the negligence of the management, or the fault of a third party.
All of the lawyers at Accident Advice Helpline work on a strict ‘no win, no fee’ basis. This means that they will always do their very best to get you the maximum amount of compensation that you are entitled to. For them to do this, you will need to provide as much evidence as possible to back up your claim. This evidence could be in the form of witness statements, photographs or medical reports. However, you can rest assured that our lawyers will be working hard on your behalf, with regular consultations by telephone from the privacy and comfort of your own home.
