Document Overview

A waiver is a legal document which protects someone who wants to reduce their risk of liability. Reducing liability is important for businesses, especially those that facilitate risk-related activities.

It is common for a vast array of recreational activities to involve a significant amount of risk, ranging from personal injury to death. As a business offering these types of activities, it is feasible that accidents or injuries may occur while customers are participating. 

A recreational activity waiver is a specific agreement between the customers and the service provider whereby the client will give up their ability to sue if any injuries, damage or loss were to occur. This document will also outline the risks associated with the specific recreational activity your business provides. These risks must be acknowledged and accepted by customers prior to commencing. 

Important

It’s important to remember that there are some exceptions to the release of liability. You won't be protected by a waiver if an incident is caused by some forms of negligence or misconduct on behalf of your business. Given the presence of notable risk in these activities, you should always have your waiver reviewed by a lawyer before use

Use this Recreational Activity Waiver If:

  • You want to protect your business from liability and potential lawsuits.
  • You want your customers to fully understand the risks of participating in your recreational activities.

What does this Recreational Activity Waiver Cover?

  • Details of recreational activity
  • Outline of the associated risks
