We are a national organisation who has been working for more than 50 years with a mandate to encourage safe participation in land-based outdoor activities. We do 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.
The ability to critically analyse a situation and make an informed decision is part of heading outdoors. It’s also what makes it an adventure — in that you never quite know what you’ll find. At MSC we promote “knowing your limits," only you know the level of risk that is appropriate to the situational factors, your experience and your equipment. – Mike Daisley, CEO
Safer places, safer activities, safer people.
Enabling people to enjoy their outdoors recreation safely.
Watch us in action for the 2016-17 Year
MSC encourage exploration and adventure in the incredible wilderness regions of New Zealand. We encourage you to participate, get out there and see what all the fuss is about. New Zealand is on the bucket list of so many people around the world for good reason.
We also encourage safe practices that ensure you make it home to your family and friends. We want you to make it home with adventurous stories, memories and photos. But, most of all we want you to make it home to do it all again next time. That's why on every advertisement, press release, video and resource we reaffirm our intent to help the 1.2 Million+ participants in outdoor recreation to make it home. You can help us spread this philosophy by sharing our resources and following the outdoor safety code so you make it home.– Mike Daisley, CEO
