I acknowledge that my safety is my personal responsibility and depends on my use of good judgment. I understand,I can reduce risks by paying attention to the environment, to my physical and emotional state, the condition of all safety related clothing equipment, and by participating only in those activities that are well within my mental and physical capabilities.
