What is it exactly you want to waive? Your responsibility for damages if something happens to them? In such a case it is unlikely the waiver will be worth the paper it is written on. What may work better is going the route of informed consent, which signifies that you have duly informed the individual of the risks related to their situation, you have exercised due diligence in addressing those risks and finally that they are prepared to accept the risks.

We have recently been tasked with creating a waiver form for students with health conditions such as pregnancy, allergies, etc. This waiver will be signed prior to them beginning work in the research lab. I was wondering if anyone is willing to share a similar waiver form.
