SATS safety and conduct rules — valid from 15 November 2017
As a SATS member, we want you to experience a positive and stimulating atmosphere every time you visit our training centre. For everyone’s safety and well-being, SATS has rules in place for our premises. We encourage you to read through our safety and conduct rules below. We also ask that you adhere to the rules when you are at our premises to work out or visit. If you are uncertain about anything, please speak to one of our employees.
SATS rules for your safety and the safety of other members
- Avoid locking up your valuables in the changing room. Use the lockers in the reception area instead where there is less risk of theft. SATS is not responsible for valuables.
- Use a lock that you deem to be secure for the lockers in the changing room.
- Always follow any instructions given by SATS employees.
- Never block the emergency exits.
- Children and young people under the age of 15 may not be at the training centre unaccompanied by an adult. The SATS site manager can make an exception on an individual basis.
- You must have a current photo of yourself in the member system for identification, and your face must be clearly visible in the photo. An exception can be made for individuals with protected identity.
- Anything prohibited by Swedish law is naturally also prohibited at SATS. Any threats, harassment or other illegal activities at a SATS training centre will be reported to the Police.
- You must leave the training centre by closing time at the latest or if requested to do so by a SATS employee.
- For reasons of safety, SATS employees are entitled to pry open padlocks left on lockers in the changing rooms after closing time. The reason for this is that the lockers must be opened, emptied and inspected at closing time. Consequently, padlocks on lockers will be pried open and the contents of the lockers will be emptied before the training centre opens the next day.
- MiniSATS has separate safety and conduct rules.
SATS rules for conduct and well-being
- SATS upholds the equal value of all people. This is one of our most important values, and it is also our primary rule for conduct and well-being. This means that we require our members to show consideration and respect for one another regardless of gender, transgender identity, disability, ethnicity, faith, sexual orientation or age. No one may behave in a manner that can be perceived as offensive or derogatory by others at the premises. This includes words, body language, clothing and other forms of expression.
- Always allow other members to use workout equipment when you are resting.
- Show consideration when you use your mobile phone. For example, put the ringer in silent mode when working out in a group, do not occupy training equipment while surfing or writing an SMS, and if you have to speak on the phone, we ask that you show consideration for others at the centre.
- Always use clean workout clothes and shoes when working out at the centre. See point 1 as well.
- You may not be barefoot in the training areas. If you are going to take part in a group activity where we recommend that you be barefoot, we ask that you wear socks or shoes to and from the group activity location.
- Use a towel to sit on in the sauna. Shaving in the shower is not allowed.
- Wipe off workout equipment with a paper wipe and spray after using it.
- Always return exercise gear to its proper location after use.
- If you arrive late to a group activity, you may be denied the possibility to take part out of consideration for the other participants.
- Taking photographs and filming at SATS premises is only allowed if approval is obtained from a manager at the training centre. However, you may take photographs and film for private use provided no other member objects or is included in the photo or video. Taking photographs and filming is never allowed in the changing rooms or in other locations where signs are posted prohibiting this.
- You may not consume alcoholic beverages at the training centre.
- You many not market/sell your own products or services at SATS.
- Only instructors and personal trainers employed by SATS may instruct and coach members on SATS premises.
- Show consideration for the training centre’s neighbours. Never drop heavy weights onto the floor, and always behave in a prudent and considerate manner otherwise.
- Please be aware that female employees may need to enter the men’s changing rooms and male employees may need to enter the women’s changing rooms. When this is necessary for the purpose of making rounds or cleaning, advance notification will always be made.
