If you are in a business that offers any type of service where an individual could be harmed or hurt, I am sure you are familiar with waivers. In fact, I am sure you have to deal with waivers all the time. You are always looking for a good way to handle your waivers. A good way to store your waivers. And a good way to make them work for you when you need them. There are apps and all kinds of options available for your waivers.
But, that isn’t the big picture. The waiver is only a small part of the relationship between your business and a customers. The waiver only helps you if something happens to them when they are using your facilities or services. The waiver makes sure they understand the inherent risks and dangers and that they are not doing anything or on anything that could create an issue. It is about informed consent. It protects you if they are harmed because of something they did. This is a moving part.
BUT, so often that is where businesses stop in the contractual relationship with the customer.
