Health and Safety Handbook

Health and Safety Handbook

Health and Safety is everyone’s responsibility.

As you are using Individualised Funding, your home is also a workplace. It is important that you understand your responsibilities under current Health and Safety regulations and what this means in the home environment which is also a place of work.

This is why we’ve put together a useful handbook that will provide you and your Support Workers with information to get you thinking about Health and Safety, as well as templates you may need.

A soft copy of the Health and Safety handbook has been sent out to all Manawanui clients. If you would like a hard-copy of the handbook, please e-mail 

Health and Safety Starter Kits 

The Basic Kit includes the Health & Safety Manual, copies of important forms, handy Health and Safety checklists and a folder to keep everything in.

The Full Kit  includes the Health and Safety Manual, copies of important forms, handy health and safety checklists, a folder, a first aid kit and 2 smoke alarms.

To order a Basic or a Full kit, please e-mail

Please note: that you will need to pay a postage fee on top of the price of the Handbook and/or other products.

* If you are not a Manawanui client or you are a provider and would like to purchase the handbook and/or the Health and Safety Kits for yourself or your organisation, you can do so here.
