Free Resource; understand limited mobility, non-weight bearing people ascending and descending staircases. Using realistic scenarios we highlight the potential social inclusion and exclusion of accessibility.
This online information resource is available, at no cost and with unlimited access, to those managing health and safety within their organisation, in order that we can use our shared resources to improve the health and safety culture in the workplace for those with limited mobility. The course considers the potential solutions for both manual and motorised wheelchairs and other options, including video demonstrations.
As in the case with all other groups, disabled people and those with limited mobility have a role to play in the workplace. The vision of disabled people and people with limited mobility, is the same as that of people without disabilities or limitations. The Health & Safety Culture towards those people impacts upon the general wellbeing of an organisation, including accident rates, productivity, reliability, competitiveness and even employee morale.
Mobility & Accessibility
This resource discusses the key elements to be considered by employers including mobility, accessibility, social inclusion, social exclusion and emergency evacuation, including the financial impact when considering implementation of these types of solutions. For those managing health and safety, another key element to be considered may be that of 'likelihood'. How often is this type of equipment actually going to be used?
Provided by SafetyMark Training. Our Mobility & Accessibility online information resource has been produced in consultation with health and safety professionals, and mobility and accessibility solutions providers throughout the UK, which reviewed options for ascent and descent of staircases by people who are weight baring and those who are not weight baring. The intention is to provide a shared resource, to raise awareness of the hazards and impacts that limitations in mobility and accessibility have upon not only employees, but also the significant impacts upon co-workers and also the employers.
