Registrations open for TIA Adventure Safety Workshops

As the peak summer season is getting underway, it’s an important time for adventure tourism and outdoor recreation operators to ensure their safety management systems are ready to go and working well.

TIA is offering FREE, half-day workshops around the country through November and early December that will focus on helping adventure and outdoor operators identify their safety management system strengths, gaps and areas for improvement. The workshops will be useful to all operators working in the adventure and outdoor sector, not only those covered by the Adventure Activities Regulations.

Attendees will find out about:

  • practical tools to ensure their safety management systems are effective
  • tools to help with incident management, safety meetings and safety assurance
  • ideas to improve their safety systems
  • safety leadership tips to maximise staff support
  • tips and lessons from other operators’ experiences

Each workshop will be followed by an optional two-hour session for operators who would like more individualised support with development and implementation of their safety management systems.

These workshops complement a series of adventure safety workshops held earlier this year. Those who attended the previous workshops will learn new information, while those who could not make the earlier dates will definitely find benefits for their business practices.

Workshop dates and locations:

Queenstown, 16 November
Christchurch, 30 November
Nelson, 1 December
Paihia, 2 December
Auckland, 3 December
Rotorua, 4 December
