CID Health and Safety Guidelines 2017

This guide includes tools, links to policies, and general principles and approaches used in New Zealand and globally to support Council for International Development (CID) members to deliver on their health and safety requirements, particularly in their engagement with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT). The aim is to encourage common and effective approaches to support compliance. The guide covers five areas:

  • Collection of health and satety standards and good practice
  • MFAT policies relating relating to health and safety
  • New Zealand Health and Safety at Work Act 2015
  • Suggested content for health and safety Policies
  • Resource sheets and templates.

For those organisations with no established policies, these templates are available to use and adapt as required. For those agencies with existing policies, the examples provide reassurance that you are doing what is required to comply with the legislation, and they may encourage a re-think in some areas.
