Health and safety advice for maritime operators of commercial parasailing businesses over water, to help them protect workers, parasailors/passengers, and other people.

These guidelines update Maritime New Zealand’s 2014 guidelines on parasailing which were written before the Health and Safety Act 2015 (HSWA) came into force.

The guidelines include practical examples to help parasailing operators meet the requirements of HSWA that are not already addressed in their Maritime Transport Operator Plan (MTOP). For example, upstream duties and worker engagement, participation and representation.

There is also guidance on what to consider when deciding what is ‘reasonably practicable’ under HSWA.
