Most organizations host or organize events for their company or with volunteers. For any organization, including for profit or non-profit, it is important to establish a process to limit liability at each event; especially events with physical activities.
One of the best practices to limit event liability is to require a signed wavier. This would need to be signed by each individual (and for minors would require a signature by a legal guardian).
If the organization is going to photograph or record individuals, a waiver may also need to include a provision allowing the use of a participant's likeness in promotional material. Failure to secure a release to use a person in advertisements (including employees) could result in significant liability.
