ASSUMPTION OF RESPONSIBILITY
I understand that participation in a field visit will take me away from a familiar environment to unfamiliar surroundings and therefore will be exposed to risks to my person and possessions.
I acknowledge that there may be certain dangers inherent in undertaking field work in international settings where there may be significant risk. I agree to take the risks associated with such locations. I will abide by all applicable Bridging Lanka instructions as outlined in the document, “Bridging Lanka General Information and Requirements for Volunteers”, together with the laws of the host country, and I will ensure that I have adequate medical and travel insurance coverage, including for my personal possessions.
More particularly, I appreciate that Bridging Lanka does not carry accident or injury insurance for my benefit and also that there may be certain matters for which I could be held at fault personally if the accompanying circumstances do not relate to or arise from my field visit or if my activities or conduct fall short of what would be considered a reasonable standard for an individual in my position. In these cases I will be personally accountable in all respects for my own actions and not to ask that Bridging Lanka, its Board of Directors, employees, and agents (the “Released Parties”) to accept the consequences thereof.
I acknowledge that I have been advised by Bridging Lanka of such risks, dangers and hazards as well as the need to act in a responsible manner at all times. My consent above is given freely in order to indicate my understanding of the acceptance of these realities and in consideration for being permitted by Bridging Lanka to participate in this field visit. I recognize that Bridging Lanka will not supervise any of the living arrangements or extracurricular activities during the field work period.
