Consultation on new adventure activities good practice guidelines

Kia ora,

WorkSafe New Zealand is developing new guidance for adventure activity operators to help them manage the risks associated with natural hazards. We have drafted the good practice guidelines and are now consulting with adventure activity operators and other key stakeholders, to get their feedback.

The new guidance is being developed as part of improvements to WorkSafe’s adventure activities regulatory function.

We welcome all feedback on the Adventure Activities – Managing the risks from natural hazards good practice guidelines. In particular, we would like your feedback on:

·         The Hills Adventure example that runs throughout the guidelines.

·         The images and figures used in the guidelines.

 Please use the feedback form on our website to provide your feedback and send it to [email protected] with the subject line ‘Adventure Activities GPG consultation feedback’.

 Submissions close at 5pm Friday 19th July 2024.

All feedback will be considered. After the guidance is updated, we will share the final good practice guidelines when it is published on our website later in the year.

Thank you for taking the time to consider providing your feedback.

If you have any queries about the draft guidance or the submission process, please email us at [email protected].
