TIA and the NZ Recreation Association have persuaded WorkSafe NZ to commit to the maintenance of the suite of existing Activity Safety Guidelines for the adventure tourism and commercial outdoor recreation sectors.
WorkSafe will periodically review the ASGs for appropriateness, currency and accuracy. TIA and NZRA will maintain oversight of the ASGs, including ensuring that the review schedule is effective and that industry’s agreed review procedures are followed.
You can find the ASG’s and their review schedule and procedures here.
Generic guidance document
WorkSafe NZ has also committed to develop a standalone ‘generic’ guidance document for adventure activities, containing the generic information currently held in and common to all the ASGs.
