The Outdoor Safety Code
The New Zealand Mountain Safety Council encourages the use of The Outdoor Safety Code across all outdoor activities, sports and recreations.
The 5 safety points above have been created through expert consultation and are the core to all outdoor safety practices.
All of the points can be expanded upon depending on your specific recreation and geographic location, so use them as a starting point and make sure you know all you can about your activity before you head out.
