Acknowledgement of Risks and Obligations


This acknowledgement of risks applies to all Club activities I may undertake as a member of Pandani Bushwalking Club Inc (the Club).

In voluntarily participating in activities of the Club which are described to me by the activity leaders I am aware that my participation in the activities may expose me to hazards and risks that could lead to injury, illness, or death or to loss of or damage to my property.

Risks in undertaking Club activities may include but are not limited to slippery, loose and/or uneven surfaces, rocks being dislodged, falling at edges of cliffs or drops or elsewhere, scrub, foul weather, water, snow, ice, strong winds, risks associated with crossing creeks and rivers, hypothermia, heat exhaustion, bites, burns, vehicle failures, equipment failures, being lost, and poor or no communication.

I am aware of and accept there may be no first-aid available on Club activities.

To minimise risks I will endeavour to ensure that:

  1. Each activity is within my capabilities,
  2. I am carrying food, water, medication, and equipment appropriate for the activity.
  3. I will advise the activity leader if I am taking any medication or have any physical or other limitation that might affect my participation in the activity.
  4. I will make every effort to remain with the rest of the party during the activity.
  5. I will advise the leader of any concerns I am having, and
  6. I will comply with all reasonable advice of Club officers and the activity leader.

I have read and understand the above requirements. I have considered the risks before choosing to sign this acknowledgement of risk.

I still wish to join the activities of the Club. 

I acknowledge that I will take responsibility for my own actions and that signing this form and the payment of my subscription will be deemed as full acceptance and understanding of the above conditions.
