Habitat for Humanity Waiver

Age Policy: Atlanta Habitat volunteers must be at least 16 years old. This is for the safety of everyone on site. While we acknowledge that many teenagers under age 16 are very responsible and mature, we must maintain our policy. There will be no exceptions for volunteers under age 16 to work on site — anyone on site under age 16 will be asked to leave immediately. In addition, volunteers ages 16 and 17 must provide consent from a parent or legal guardian on the new Release and Waiver Liability form.

Registration and Sign-in Policy: All volunteers must register by completing a Release and Waiver of Liability form prior to their scheduled volunteer activity. These forms allow Atlanta Habitat to collect contact information and be better prepared in the event of an emergency. In addition, all volunteers must sign-in on site each time they volunteer. This initiates eligibility for secondary accident insurance coverage.

No Smoking Policy: All work sites are smoke-free. Smoking on site is a fire hazard as well as a potential health risk to those breathing in second-hand smoke. Any volunteer who must smoke during the day must go away from the construction site. Cigarette butts should be extinguished in water and then disposed of in a trash bin.

Atlanta Habitat for Humanity has a “volunteer at your own risk” policy.
Please notify your houseleader immediately of any accident in order to facilitate claims processing for accident insurance benefits, which in certain circumstances may supplement your personal coverage.
