For New Zealand sex-on-site venues, what are the laws surrounding the requirements of the venue to have condoms and lubricant available to all its customers?

One would assume after nine years of Aunty Helen, it would be mandatory to provide condoms and lube.

There is a general health and safety requirement at all workplaces.

See http://www.osh.govt.nz/law/hse.shtml about the Health and Safety in Employment Act 1992 which promotes the prevention of harm to all people at work, and others in, or in the vicinity of, places of work.  The HSE Act applies to all New Zealand workplaces and places duties on employers, the self-employed, employees, principals and others who are in a position to manage or control hazards.  The emphasis of the law is on management of health and safety at work. It requires employers and others to maintain safe working environments, and implement sound practice.  The responsibility for the employer to prevent harm would extend to visitors to a sex on site venue.  

This Act was passed in 1992 so not really the responsibility of the recent Labour Government.  Any Government could have passed the Act though because improving HSE practices could reduce claims on ACC and costs to hospitals and the health sector.  Its common sense to take steps to help customers avoid injury and sickness if it will save the Government money.

There are Codes of practice for a range of workplaces including the home
http://www.osh.dol.govt.nz/order/catalogue/homeasaworkplace.shtml and one that fluffycatsdad should appreciate for the sex industry

The sex industry guide can be downloaded from
http://www.osh.dol.govt.nz/order/catalogue/pdf/sexindustry.pdf and yes it covers condoms and lube.

I think the NZAF works hard with all the sex-on-site venues to ensure condoms and lube are available. They may even provide them for the venues?
