Why we're here
New Zealand’s adventure activity sector is world-renowned and is an important contributor to our economy and our national identity.
It is imperative that New Zealanders, visitors and the adventure activities sector can be assured that all operators have sound safety practices.
The Health and Safety in Employment (Adventure and Activities) Regulations (2011) established a safety audit and registration process that is a key part of providing that assurance. The regulations aim to enhance professionalism and ensure consistent good practice across the sector.
Did you know?
One in three international holiday tourists do some sort of extreme adventure tourism during their stay in New Zealand.
On Monday 4 April 2016, the New Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 (HSWA) came into effect.
HSWA repeals the Health and Safety in Employment Act 1992, with immediate effect.
All references to the 1992 Act on this website will be progressively removed.
