I understand and acknowledge that there are risks of personal injury, death, and property damage while participating in activities and events and using the facilities offered by Open Source Maker Labs (OSML). Some risks are inherent in the use of power and hand tools; other risks are inherent in making or fixing things generally; still other risks may arise from conditions, situations, or activities of which I am presently unaware. All use of tools has some risk of injury, particularly when used incorrectly or unsafely.
In consideration of OSML allowing me to enter and/or utilize its facilities, I hereby release, discharge, waive, and disclaim any result of my participation in any project, my use of OSML tools or equipment, or any activities incidental to such use: this shall apply even if OSML is negligent or otherwise at fault. I also agree to defend and indemnify OSML and hold it harmless for any personal injury, death, or property damage or loss arising from my conduct, even if OSML is also negligent or otherwise at fault.
I understand that the effect of my signing this document is that I (1) assume all risk of any injury, wrongful death, or property damage I might suffer while participating in a class or otherwise using the facilities of OSML, (2) absolve and release OSML from the consequences of their negligence and/or other fault, (3) will indemnify and defend OSML against any legal actions or other claims for damages arising as a result of my conduct, (4) further agree to the use of the aforementioned individual's image and any images of class projects or work in progress on the premises for program promotion and publicity, and (5) that I may be contacted by OSML with information or offers relevant to this activity or event. I understand that I am forfeiting important legal rights and incurring important legal responsibilities.
I understand that certain skills and safety procedures are required in order to reduce the dangers involved in project work. I agree to wear eye protection at all times when in the work areas and to use such other safety equipment as may be required by the type of work I am performing. I understand and agree that should emergency services become necessary, the expenses are my sole responsibility and not those of OSML. I agree that the terms of this document bind me, my heirs, assigns, executors, and administrators, and protect OSML, its agents, employees, instructors, independent contractors, lenders, members, customers, officers, directors, and shareholders.
