Adventure safety website launched

8:31 am on 7 December 2011

The adventure tourism industry is to use a new website to help ensure safety within the industry.

The site has been developed by the Tourism Industry Association along with support from Outdoors New Zealand and funding from the Department of Labour.

It was recommended by a review of adventure tourism after at least 10 deaths in the sector in 2008.

The Tourism Industry Association says it proves how committed the industry is to safety, as operators have shared their experiences and knowledge without fear or favour.
