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.
We come from all walks of life but have one common interest, to explore the outdoors and help others do so safely.
For all you outdoor enthusiasts, whether you walk, run, bike, climb or hunt – we wish you all the best out there in New Zealand's wild backcountry and encourage you to use our resources before you go, have a great time and make it home.
