Exhibitors/stallholders are persons conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU’s) for the purposes of the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 (the Act), and their stalls are workplaces. Exhibitors/stallholders and their workers are expected to be familiar with their obligations under the Act (and in particular their duties under Part 2 of the Act) and to comply with those obligations.

The Kerikeri Half Marathon Street Party 2017 Sub-Committee (KHMSP) and the Kerikeri District Business Association (KDBA) are providing their services as volunteers and are not PCBU’s for the purposes of the Act. By signing this Application Form and Declaration, exhibitors/stallholders acknowledge and agree to this, and agree to indemnify KHMSP and/or KDBA together with their officers/volunteers in respect of any liability arising out of any enforcement action that may be taken due to any breach or alleged breach of the requirements of the Act, which includes an indemnity for any costs that may be incurred in relation to such enforcement action.

We ask that exhibitors/stall-holders and their staff/helpers remain vigilant and alert and advise KHMSP/KDBA of any event or behaviour that may compromise the safety or enjoyment of the event i.e. hazards that have been created, lack or insufficient control of a hazard, unsociable and/or unsafe behaviour of any persons.

KHMSP and KDBA will not be responsible for any accident, loss or damage that may be caused to or suffered by a stall or exhibit, or which may be caused directly or indirectly by any other stall or exhibit, notwithstanding any alleged negligence on the part of any officer or volunteer of HMSP/KDBA, and it shall be a condition of entry that each exhibitor/stall-holder shall hold KHMSP/KDBA and its officers/volunteers indemnified against any claim in respect of any such accident, loss or damage.

By registering an application to be an exhibitor/stall holder at the Kerikeri Street Party event you agree to and accept the above conditions of entry.
