When it comes to recruitment, it’s important to hire the best person for the job regardless of any other factor, such as age, gender, race, religion, and whether or not they have a disability.
If you have recently employed a new member of staff and they have a disability, e.g. they are in a wheelchair, you might be wondering what your responsibilities are as an employer in terms of health and safety, and how to modify the workplace in order to improve access.
The Equality Act lays out your responsibilities, and this means that within the contemporary office environment and beyond, you have to make amendments to the area in order to accommodate an employee who has a disability, whether they’re in a wheelchair or not. This may include ramps, wall railings, disabled toilet facilities, and possibly making doorways wider, to allow wheelchairs to pass through easily.
Finding the best corporate office furniture for your employees is vital, whether they have a disability or not, ensuring their comfort throughout the working day. This includes office chairs which adjust as a bare minimum.
In order to create an inclusive working environment you must focus on employees as a whole, but if you have employees who require modifications to the working environment, these changes should be made as soon as possible, in order for you to meet your employer requirements.
