All volunteers should sign a waiver. You may ask volunteers to bring a signed-copy of the Waiver to training. Alternatively, you can ask volunteers to sign the waiver and oath of confidentiality on the day/night of the count (at check-in). You should keep a record of volunteer activity in a database to ensure that volunteers have completed all required forms. This includes registration, the waiver, the oath of confidentiality and a record of training. In large communities, volunteer management software may be the most practical way to send and receive volunteer forms. The following waiver is only a sample; you should amend the enclosed language to accurately reflect your local rules, regulations and internal policies on volunteer liabilities.
