Release of Liability/Waiver is a risk management tool that is used to transfer part of the risk of the activity to the one participating in it. The participant is declaring that the company or organization that's hosting or running a certain activity (a gym that has a rock climbing wall; a voluntary service learning activity; and other similar situations) will not be held responsible for any injuries that person sustains while participating in the activity.
Assumption of Risk is similar to a release of liability. When a participant signs a form assuming the risk of an activity, the participant is declaring that the potential for injury and personal damage has been explained to participant, and that participant is proceeding even with the knowledge that the activity is dangerous. If something happens, participant will be responsible for their own injuries.
