News Organizations Safety Self-Assessment
Developed by the Alliance and key ACOS signatories, this practical tool enables news outlets to review and improve their current safety practices and protocols. It also helps news managers to identify and better understand their own weaknesses and strengths when it comes to the security of individuals who are working for them, including freelancers.
The Self-Assessment is designed to prompt a constructive conversation around safety best practice and encourage practical and effective responses. It can be modified and adapted according to the size and set-up of individual organizations and can also be used to inform existing mechanisms.
This resource is a collaboration between the ACOS Alliance, the Committee to Protect Journalists, Dart Center for Journalism & Trauma, Free Press Unlimited, Frontline Freelance Register, International Federation of Journalists, International News Safety Institute, International Media Support, International Press Institute, International Women’s Media Foundation, Reporters Without Borders and World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers.
