Release and Waiver of Liability
To be read and signed by all persons intending to do work for Habitat for Humanity of the Roaring Fork Valley.
I acknowledge that I or my dependent(s) have voluntarily applied to participate with Habitat for Humanity of the Roaring Fork Valley without pay as a volunteer and not as a consumer in the construction and other activities. I understand that these activities are not conducted in the lease or sale of goods or services.
I or my dependent(s) am/are aware that construction is a hazardous activity. I am voluntarily participating in the activities of construction, which include, but are not limited to, the construction of residential buildings, loading and unloading materials, painting, finishing, framing, transportation to and from building sites, and other related activities, with the knowledge that medical facilities may not be available in the event of illness or injury to myself. This release is intended to be broad in its effect. I hereby agree to accept any and all risk of injury, illness or death and verify this statement by placing my signature below.
As consideration for being permitted to participate in these activities and use their tools and facilities, I hereby agree that I, any assignees, heirs, guardians and legal representatives will not make a claim against, sue or attack the property of Habitat, its directors, officers, agents, employees, volunteers, suppliers, contractors or subcontractors for injury, illness or damage resulting from negligent, intentional or others acts. I hereby release Habitat from all actions, claims or demands that I, or my representatives, now have, or may hereafter have, for injury, death or damages resulting from my participation in Habitat activities.
I or my dependent(s) have carefully read this assumption of risk, release of Habitat and agreement and I or my dependent(s) fully understand its contents. I am aware that this is a release of liability and a legal contract between myself and Habitat and that it effects my legal rights. I am signing this document of my own free will.
I understand that Habitat for Humanity of the Roaring Fork Valley cannot be liable for any injuries or illness that I or my dependent(s) may suffer. I expressly waive any such claim for compensation or liability on the part of Habitat for Humanity of the Roaring Fork Valley beyond what may be offered freely by the representative of Habitat in the event of such injury or medical expense.
I hereby grant permission to the rights of my image, likeness and sound of my voice as recorded on audio or video tape without payment or any other consideration. I understand that my image may be edited, copied, exhibited, published or distributed and waive the right to inspect or approve the finished product wherein my likeness appears. Additionally, I waive any right to royalties or other compensation arising or related to the use of my image or recording. By signing this release I understand this permission signifies that photographic or video recordings of me may be electronically displayed via the Internet or in a public educational setting in order to represent Habitat for Humanity. There is no time limit on the validity of this release nor is there any geographic limitation on where these materials may be distributed.
