I just find this waiver interesting, Is this something legal?
Should the company guarantee its employees safety and well being.
I've been with a lot of companies and this is the first time I will ever sign such a document.
My colleagues mentioned that this waiver is being exercised in any event team building, christmas party, sports fest and year end.

Any insight on this will be much appreciated.

You can view the document here. replace all comma with dot

So far nothing wrong with it - since they specify situations of "accident, force majeure" etc etc which in reality the company has no control over.

But I do find it unusual or improper that you will be charged a fee for non-attendance.

I guess its the companies tradition for them not to overspend in case only few will participate.
Well, I guess it's fine if you think so.

Here is a followup question regarding the same waiver but on a different event.

A sportsfest - a probationary employee got injured that caused bone fracture etc.
Since he is still in probation he doesn't have an HMO card yet, no coverage at all.

Given the employee signed the same type of waiver. Is it also right that the company will not be held responsible and hold no liability?

No direct liability - but since it happens in an official office activity, the employee should be taken care of by bringing the employee to the hospital and if possible handling the expenses in the meantime, then do a salary deduction afterwards.
