Welcome to the New Zealand Mountain Safety Council 

The New Zealand Mountain Safety Council (MSC) is a national organisation with a mandate to encourage safe participation in land-based outdoor activities. It does this through the development and promotion of safety messaging, by identifying and responding to insights provided by the ongoing collection and analysis of data, and by building partnerships with relevant organisations.

Thanks to our partners 

We couldn't do what we do without the tremendous support and guidance of our partners.

Truly, they form the backbone of MSC and are central to the work that we do and the ways in which we engage the public in our vision statement "safer places, safer activities, safer people."

Who are our partners?

All organisations that the MSC work with are referred to as ‘Partners’, regardless of how often we work together or the nature of that work. Within this wide range of partners there are an additional sub-group who comprise the MSC Council. 'Council Member Organisations,' of which there are currently 27, form the governance structure of the organisation. Learn more >>
