Disability Employment - Workplace modifications and adjustments

How do I encourage and support staff working with someone with disability?

Managers and colleagues working with a person with disability may lack knowledge about including a person with disability into the workplace. Workplace adjustments may be required and information on disability disclosure can be daunting.

The following information can help you manage workplace modifications and adjustments:

When you find the product or solution you need, you can view contact details for suppliers in your area.

Disability Access and Inclusion Plan toolkit - A practical resource developed by the Department for Communities and Social Inclusion (DCSI) to assist in drafting a Disability Access and Inclusion Plan.

Workplace Modification Guideline (DCSI) - Outlines the steps involved in identifying the need and applying for workplace modifications for work-injured employees and employees with disability.
