"The best geologist is the one who has seen the most rocks"
GSNZ wants to maintain a strong, and safe, fieldtrip culture in New Zealand.

Field safety guidelines

With the increased emphasis on Health and Safety, GSNZ has developed fieldtrip safety guidelines. These are primarily for use on its official conference fieldtrips but can also be used by branches.

Fieldguides

Since 2002 GSNZ fieldguides have been converted to pdf format and are posted here for ready reference. Such guides often contain useful syntheses of information that may not be published elsewhere. Proper citation is encouraged and, where appropriate, users should contact the authors for permission to cite material.

It is the responsibility of individuals to familiarise themselves with hazards and safety requirements on any fieldtrip, and also to obtain appropriate permission to enter property (possession of a guide confers no privilege or exemption!).
