Updated: health & safety reforms - more info from Worksafe

11 August 2014

An early advisory about the likely effect on the sport and recreation sector of the Health and Safety at Work Act, which will come into force on 2015.

See Health & Safety Reforms in Managing Sport.


WorkSafe NZ has new information for event organisers about activities covered by the new regulations (see above).

WorkSafe NZ further defines adventure activity (specifically what is meant by ‘assisted to participate’). There is also more information for contractors or organisations who use contractors.
