Student Production Waiver

I am aware that engaging in student production activities and being present in film or video production areas and sets involves inherent risks and dangers and may constitute being "in harm's way" due to the presence and very nature of heavy equipment, high voltage electricity, unmarked obstacles, sharp objects, and other materials and people. I hereby certify that I will have experience and knowledge of the safe usage of equipment I am using, or ask a faculty member or staff or help, before using any equipment, whether that equipment is for shooting film or video, or for the construction of sets (including the use of dangerous power tools). I certify that I will not use school tools and equipment in any way that might endanger myself, fellow students, faculty, or staff, or harm the equipment itself. I will also use appropriate safety measures when using such equipment and when present in film or video production areas, including but not limited to wearing safety glasses when using power tools, wearing rubber-soled shoes when using high-voltage electricity, and wearing work gloves when using lights and other hot materials and equipment. I further certify that I will intervene, or seek out faculty or staff of Hawai'i Pacific University to intervene, if I witness any unsafe practices that might harm any individual or the equipment itself, whether on campus or on locations. I hereby release, discharge and agree to hold harmless any individual, facility, school, or organization connected to or associated with the Department of Communication, the Multimedia Program or Hawai'i Pacific University for any and all damages, injuries or other harm that my befall me during any time I may work in or outside the school's studios, classrooms, media labs, and/or equipment stock rooms in connection with student production activities; this includes, but is not limited to, on-campus or off-campus location sites, whether with or without an instructor present, i.e., on self-directed location shoots.
