The policy and procedure documents held in this section of the Policy and Procedure Library relate to the provision of a safe and appropriate environment.
The following Policy and Procedure Templates are available for NGO Mental Health and Addiction Providers and other organisations to download and modify to suit their own service requirements.
The following resources are related to the Safe and Appropriate Environment Policy and Procedure Templates:
The Safe and Appropriate Environment section is listed within the New Zealand Standards (8134.1.4 2008) Health and Disability Service (Core) Standards. The intended outcome of this section of the Standards is that services are provided in a clean, safe environment that is appropriate to the needs of the service user, and that physical privacy is maintained. In addition the Standards are in place to ensure that the service has adequate space and amenities to facilitate independence, are in a setting appropriate to the service user group, and meet the needs of people with disabilities.
Please note: While every effort is made to keep the policy and procedure templates and related information on this website up to date, organisations themselves must ensure all policies and procedures implemented within their respective organisation comply with all legislative and contract requirements.
