Injury Liability Protection for Recreational Physical Activity

Location
California
Organization(s)
UCLA Health Impact Assessment Project

This rapid HIA examined the potential health effects of a proposed legislative initiative aimed at providing public and private organizations with protection against liability associated with the provision of facilities and services promoting physical activity. The purpose of conducting this HIA was to investigate whether—and to what extent—removing this barrier will lead employers, school districts and community centers to offer their grounds as affordable and convenient places where employees and community members can exercise, thereby increasing physical activities levels in the general population.
