Assumption of Risk
Assumption of Risk
Every activity that one engages in has certain risks and hazards associated with it. The following is a list of risks, hazards, and physical stresses associated within the facility in which you have chosen to participate.
Risks, Hazards and Physical Stresses:
1. Muscle pulls, cramps, sprains, strains, cuts, bruises, and other injuries during normal activity. These hazards may be reduced by warming up, proper conditioning, and cooling down when exercising, and by wearing the appropriate dress and footwear.
2. Dehydration. This hazard may be reduced by consumption of liquids before, during and after exercising.
3. Heat Exhaustion and Heat Stroke. This hazard may be reduced by not exercising at a high or increased intensity level during high temperatures.
4. Cardiovascular complication as a result of physical exertion. This hazard may be reduced by not eating before participation, by proper conditioning, by recognizing signs of fatigue, and by reacting responsibly to the various warning signs of cardiovascular distress.
Each participant recognizes that each person must always be responsible for his/her well-being and the well-being of the group he/she is a part.
Each participant shares with other participants the concerns and responsibilities of safety and agrees to follow safe procedures and to avoid unnecessary, hazardous situations resulting with his/her actions are beyond the generally accepted practices for safety in the activity, such as use of alcohol prior to and during participation.
Like-wise, each individual accepts responsibility for actions that are outside the bounds of public law, such as the use or possession of illegal drugs.
1. It is understood that the physical exercise sessions are vigorous and that a physical examination prior to exercising is recommended.
2. Should any injury be incurred during participation in this activity, an injury Report Form must be completed and submitted to the Member Services Suite in Carmichael Gym.
3. The injured participant is responsible for all financial obligations incurred in any treatment necessary by the injury.
4. All individuals participating in activities are urged to take proper precautions to assure their safety.
By engaging in recreational activities, the participant assumes the risk of bodily injury and agrees to release the university, its officers, employees and agents from all liability for injuries sustained by the participant. Persons participating in recreational activities at NC State University are strongly recommended to acquire their own personal health insurance since the university does not carry health or accident insurance to cover injuries and medical care for these individuals.
