USAO Drover Difference Day (hereafter “Program”) is a one day campus volunteer project. The terms of this Assumption of Risks and Liability Release Agreement (hereafter “Agreement”) are required as a condition of participation in the Program, and shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the applicable laws of the State of Oklahoma.
As a Volunteer Participant, I expect to take part in any number of activities for the Program which may create foreseeable or inherent risks of injury to my person and/or personal property, including but not limited to: (1) traveling to and from job sites in and around the Chickasha area; (2) using hand tools (use of power tools is strictly prohibited), basic chemical/materials (e.g., paints, cleaning supplies, etc.), and/or small equipment; (3) performing basic gardening tasks, such as pulling weeds, trimming shrubbery, clearing debris, and tilling; and (4) performing basic clean-up activities, such as shoveling, sweeping, scrubbing, raking, painting, etc. I hereby agree to assume any and all risks that may cause me personal property damage or loss, and/or personal illness or bodily injury that may arise during and/or as a result of my participation in the activities of this Program.
I agree to not take part in any Program activity that would present a danger to me due to my health or physical condition, regardless of whether I have disclosed such condition to any staff, employee or agent of USAO or USAO Drover Difference Day. I agree that if I do undertake any such activities, I do so at my own risk. I understand and agree that I must arrange my own personal medical care insurance to cover potential risks associated with my participation in the Program. I understand and accept that USAO does not provide commercial medical expense coverage. In the absence of gross negligence, and in consideration of USAO accepting me into USAO Drover Difference Day, I and my heirs, executors, administrators, agents, representative, insurers and attorneys, to the fullest extent allowed by law hereby release and discharge the State of Oklahoma, USAO, its Board of Trustees, any USAO department or administrative unit and their respective officers, employees and agents from any and all claims and causes of action that may arise during and/or as a result of my participation in the Program.
I understand and agree that Program staff may need to respond to accidents and potential emergency situations. Therefore, I hereby give my consent for any medical treatment that may be required during my participation with the understanding that the cost of any such treatment will be my responsibility.
I understand and agree that, if any provision of this Agreement is held invalid, that invalidity does not impact the other provisions which remain in full effect. To this end, the terms and conditions of this Agreement are declared severable.
