Workplace Assessments

Here’s a video highlighting our Workplace Assessment service (includes BSL and subtitles)

Workplace Assessments for employees with vision impairments or who are Deaf or have hearing loss

Workplace Assessments support employees with sensory impairments while helping your organisation become more inclusive, accessible and equal for everyone.

Taking a holistic approach, we identify workplace challenges and practical solutions that benefits both employees and their colleagues.

Assessments cover all aspects of the job role including tasks, working environment, display screen equipment (DSE), assistive technology, changes to procedures and interaction with colleagues and customers. We also look at external factors such as travel and any home-related challenges that may indirectly impact employees’ work performance.

Once our recommendations are reviewed, reasonable adjustments can be put in place to help employees reach their full working potential. Commissioning a work-based assessment indicates that you value your employees and wish to ensure their roles are fully supported and productive.
