Assumption of Risk *
Wood Shop, Metal Shop, Fabrication, Event Production and Artistic activities, by their very nature, carry with them certain inherent risks that cannot be eliminated regardless of the care taken to avoid injuries. Fabrication equipment, both stationary and hand tools, carry inherent dangers of use. Industrial Spaces carry certain additional risks, including but not limited to uneven flooring, variations in temperature, dust and other allergens and irritants. Various tools and machines, in addition to furnishing cutting blades, generate heat, sparks and friction. Certain glues, solvents, and chemicals can pose health risks to susceptible persons.The specific risks vary from activity to activity, but the risks range from minor injuries such as abrasions, bruises, burns, scratches, or cuts, to major injuries such as severe allergic reactions, eye injury or loss of sight, hearing impairment, wounds, severed fingers, or death. Furthermore, any such injury may create substantial social and economic loss.I have read the previous paragraphs and I know, understand, and appreciate these and other risks that are inherent in Wood Shop, Metal Shop, Fabrication, Event Production and Artistic activities taking place in association with Ingenuity Cleveland and IngenuityLabs @ the Hamilton Collaborative.

Severability and Acknowledgment of Understanding *
I understand and agree that the foregoing waiver, assumption of risks, and indemnification are intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the law of the State of Ohio and that if any portion thereof is held invalid, it is agreed that the balance shall, notwithstanding, continue in full legal force and effect. I have read these waiver of liability, assumption of risk, and indemnification statements, fully understand their terms, and understand that I am giving up substantial rights, including my right to sue. I acknowledge that I am signing the agreement freely and voluntarily, and intend my agreement to be a complete and unconditional release of all liability to the greatest extent allowed by law.
