62-8-26. Voluntary waiver--Finding by department. Before approving a waiver under § 62-8-24 or 62-8-25, the department shall be satisfied that the worker has voluntarily entered into the agreement to waive compensation, that it is of greater advantage to the worker and the worker's dependents, if any, for the worker to work in an occupation where the worker's disease may become aggravated than to seek other employment, and that the working conditions maintained by the employer are such as to minimize the hazards of silicosis.
