In consideration for being allowed to use and/or participate in activities related to the use of Collab Makerspace, its tools, machinery and premises (subsumed by and hereinafter referred to collectively as the woodshop) , I (on behalf of myself, my heirs, assigns, administrators, executors and next of kin) release from liability and waive my right to sue Collab Project, Dystopian Studios Limited, Big Art Labs and any past, present or future officers, employees, representatives, members, volunteers and agents of the above named (collectively referred to hereinafter as the entities), from any and all claims, including negligence, resulting in any physical injury, illness (including death) or economic loss that I may suffer because of my use of and/or participation in activities related to the use of the makerspace.

I am voluntarily using the Collab Makerspace. I understand that equipment installed and available for use in the shop is inherently hazardous and that woodworking, metalworking and making can be a dangerous activity.

  • I understand that there are risks, such as physical and/or psychological injury, pain, suffering, illness, disfigurement, temporary or permanent disability or even death, which may occur from my use of, or activities within the shop.
  • These injuries or outcomes may arise from my own or other’s actions, inactions, negligence, or from the condition of the shop and its equipment.

  • I agree to hold the previously named entities harmless from any and all claims, loss or damage to my personal property, liabilities and costs, including attorney’s fees, as a result of my use of the shop. If the entities incur any of these types of expenses from any action I may bring, I agree to reimburse the entities.

If I need medical treatment, Collab Makerspace and any of its representatives are authorized to obtain medical treatment for me, but that no obligation is imposed on them to do so. I will be financially responsible for any costs of such treatment. I agree that I will not hold Collab Makerspace, Dystopian Studios Limited or the related entities responsible for any claims resulting from any medical treatment.
