We’re sports fans, maybe you are too. If you are, then like us you probably like to attend the big games. Whether it’s football, basketball, baseball, or any other sport, when you’re in the stands and not on the court or field, you probably don’t expect to be injured – and you shouldn’t. When you’re at a stadium you should always feel safe. You should always be able to relax and simply enjoy the game.
We value a worry-free environment when it comes to sports. That’s why in the past we’ve even helped install handrails at Indiana University’s Assembly Hall. Because we know that serious injuries can result when proper safety measures aren’t taken.
Last weekend at the Indianapolis Colts’ home opener, two attendees fell over the railing at Lucas Oil Stadium. Now crews are double-checking the stadium’s railing to make sure they’re properly secured and safe for the public. Neither of the two individuals were injured, but unfortunately that’s not always the case.
In fact, during a match-up on the very same day between the Green Bay Packers and the San Francisco 49ers, a fan fell from an elevated walkway and lost his life. The investigation into the man’s tragic death is ongoing, and police are trying to determine whether alcohol was a factor in the accident.
Personal responsibility plays a large role in keeping yourself safe at any sporting event, but we can’t forget that the venue, no matter big or small, should have every reasonable safeguard in place. We should be worrying about whether our favorite team is going to win, not about whether or not we’re going to get hurt.
