Join us for a webinar on the MBIE Adventure Activity Natural Hazard Consultation Document and Risk Disclosure vs Liability Disclaimers. As part of the response to the Whakaari White Island tragedy in 2019, the Minister for Workplace Relations and Safety directed the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) to undertake a targeted review of how we regulate safety in adventure activities in New Zealand. The consultation document presents a package of change proposals that could work together, individually, or in combination to achieve these objectives.
Representatives from MBIE will be speaking to the document and answering operator questions. We’ll also hear from Melissa Hammer from Anderson Lloyd to explain the difference between a Risk Disclosure and a Liability Waiver (in the context of New Zealand law) and why it’s important for operators to use the former vs the latter, and Chris Roberts, Chair of the Expert Reference Group.
