Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
Legally you cannot waive your liability for death or personal injury arising out of your negligence, even if a disclaimer has been signed.
However, that only applies if you have been negligent, such as if you have provided faulty equipment, not undertaken a risk assessment, not trained the employees properly, etc. If you have done all that is reasonably expected of you, including having specific procedures in place, and it is the employees who have failed to follow them and that has resulted in the injury, then such a disclaimer can indeed be sufficient. However it is important to remember that the injury must be as a result of the employees’ failure to follow the procedures, not any act of negligence on your part as that can never be waived.

legally that can indeed be sufficient - the key is to provide safe equipment, using safe procedures and train them properly according to these. The disclaimer does basically state that they are expected to follow these procedures and that if they do nit, they will be liable for injuries and that can be legally sound
you are welcome all the best
