ACKNOWLEDGEMENT AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK, RELEASE AND WAIVER OF LIABILITY AGREEMENT

In consideration of the services of The LAKE DISTRICT WHITE WATER RAFTING COMPANY LIMITED and as a condition to participate in The LAKE DISTRICT WHITE WATER RAFTING COMPANY LIMITED excursions, I hereby agree as follows:

Acknowledgement and Assumption of Risk:

Whilst white water rafting has an excellent safety record, I acknowledge the inherent risk in river excursions, including floating on river, jumping from the raft, jumping from the waterfall, canyoning, tubing, floating down the river, whitewater entering, entering and exiting the river, and transport to and from the river which could result in personal injury, death or property damage to myself, to property or to third parties. I also understand that such risks, whether known or unknown, cannot be eliminated from such river excursions. I hereby expressly agree and promise to accept and assume all of the risk associated with such river excursions and further agree that my participation in these activities is purely voluntary, and I elect to participate in spite of such risks, excepting liability arising from personal injury or death caused by our negligence.

1. Release and Waiver of Liability and Claims:

I hereby expressly agree to release, waive and discharge The LAKE DISTRICT WHITE WATER RAFTING COMPANY LIMITED and affiliated companies, officers, directors, employees, and agents from any and all liability, claims, demands or causes of action that I may have now or hereafter for any and all injuries to my person or property that may be sustained by me or the children in my care during the river excursion or resulting from or associated with such river excursions.

2. Agreement to Indemnify:

I further agree to indemnify, save and hold harmless and defend The LAKE DISTRICT WHITE WATER RAFTING COMPANY LIMITED from any loss, liability damage or cost that they may incur due to my presence or the presence of the children in my care, and participation in any river excursion, including without limitation, subrogation and/ or derivative claims brought by any third party or insurer in connection with any injury or damage that I may suffer while on The LAKE DISTRICT WHITE WATER RAFTING COMPANY LIMITED river excursions.

ADULT PARTICIPANTS

Lake District White Water Rafting Limited accepts its responsibility to make its trips as safe as is reasonably practicable. However, adventurous activities are inherently hazardous and cannot be completely risk free, however hard we try.

Accidents can happen without any contributory negligence from the company or its staff. Lake District White Water Rafting Limited can accept no responsibility for loss or damage to personal property or for personal injury not arising as a result of its own act or default.

I understand and accept the above statements and accept that I have a responsibility to take careful note of instructions and to act in a way that will minimise the likelihood of injury. I am fit for the course and will inform the centre before the course of any special medical conditions that might affect my safety.

PARENTAL CONSENT

Lake District White Water Rafting Limited accepts its responsibility to make its trips as safe as is reasonably practicable. The staff have, and fully accept, a duty of care to make those activities as safe as is reasonably practical. They are required to adhere to a comprehensive set of safety rules and there is a quality management system to monitor the fact that rules and procedures are adhered to.

However, adventurous activities are inherently hazardous and cannot be completely risk free however hard we try. Accidents can happen without any contributory negligence from the centre or its staff.

Moreover, the environment at Lake District White Water Rafting is such that we cannot “fence off” all hazardous areas. Your son or daughter must therefore help our staff to look after their safety by listening carefully to instructions, by doing what they are asked to do and by not being reckless by trying to do more than they have been briefed to do. Only give your consent if you are confident that they will behave responsibly in this way. Lake District White Water Rafting Limited can accept no responsibility for loss of or damage to personal property or for personal injury unless arising as a result of its own action or default. 

I understand and accept the above statements. My son or daughter is fit for the course and will inform Lake District White Water Rafting before the trip of any special medical conditions that might affect my son’s or daughter’s safety.

I agree to my son or daughter receiving emergency medical treatment, including anaesthetic, as considered necessary by the medical authorities present and I give authority to members of staff of Lake District White Water Rafting to consent to such treatment.
