Working with Disability in the Workplace




Working with Disability in the Workplace Online E-learning Course

We all have the human right to be treated equally with dignity and respect, but quite often we do not understand the complex needs of others. Disabled people have the same right as everyone else to work. For many of us we do not understand the specific challenges or difficulties that disabled people face on a daily basis. The employer has a responsibility to ensure that reasonable adjustments are made within the workplace to accommodate the requirements of a disabled person. Duties also extend to employees for example – you may be requested to assist a disabled person during an emergency evacuation. If you employ disabled people or you could potentially have disabled visitors you need to consider our Working with Disability in the Workplace Course.

This e – learning module provides the essential information as detailed within the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (DDA). The training clarifies both the employer’s and employee’s responsibility in addition to assisting with the practical application to assist disabled people.

There are many types of disability, for example:

  • Mobility
  • Sensory – hearing and sight
  • Learning

But most importantly the module assists both the employer and employee understand disability, adopt the right attitudes and addresses perception of disability.
