Health and Safety

We take health and safety seriously at GTGO.

Over the past few years, we’ve migrated from being a mostly voluntary based organisation organising free trips with car-pooling, to now providing guiding services, transport, online registrations, ticketing, and following an externally audited SOPS (Safety management system).

Some of our protocol includes

  • NZTA TSL (transport service licence) for the provision of large and small passenger transport. Drivers have P-endorsed licences where needed.

  • AdventureMark external safety audit certification, for NZ Safety Audit Statndard for Adventure Activities 2017. Walking and camping, paddleboarding, cycling

  • Peak Safety, outdoor first aid training for guides

  • NZOIA mountain bike and bush leader qualification for guides

  • Wherewolf risk-acknowledgement check-in for all guests.

  • HIRAC (hazard identification risks and controls) for all activities.

Further, Got To Get Out has gained concession to legally conduct guided / organised outdoor activities on council or crown land, and we are a concessionaire with;

  • Auckland Regional Parks

  • Department of Conservation.

  • Many other regional councils in NZ.

We thank every council or organistion who allow us to conduct our activity on their land.
