About Disability Awareness Training

Disability Awareness Training increases awareness and understanding of disability in the workplace. It is designed to equip organisations and individuals with the knowledge and skills necessary to create an inclusive environment where all employees can thrive.

Why is Disability Awareness Training Important?

Government employment data has shown that the disability employment rate has fallen over recent years despite non-disabled employment rates rising. Because of this pattern, the disability employment gap is now at its widest since 2018. This has been made worse by the fact that more disabled people are leaving work each year than moving in.

Research conducted by the disability charity Scope provides context for this trend. People with a disability are approximately twice as likely to leave employment than those without a disability. Scope’s investigation found discrimination and a lack of reasonable adjustments to be two leading causes of employees with a disability leaving work.

Disability Awareness Training explains how to tackle discrimination and promote empathy and inclusion in your workplace. It also outlines how employers can make reasonable adjustments for their workers with disabilities, ensuring they can succeed in their roles.

Are You Aware of Your Responsibilities?

Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, employers must provide a safe and accessible work environment for all employees. This duty requires employers to understand and consider the needs of their employees with disabilities when identifying and minimising workplace risks.

The Equality Act 2010 creates legal safeguards for disabled individuals and mandates employers to promote inclusivity and equality within their workplaces. Specific duties include:

  • Following inclusive hiring practices
  • Making reasonable adjustments to support employees with disabilities
  • Ensure all employees have equal opportunities for promotion or development
  • Address any disability-related concerns or complaints

Disability Awareness Training explores these legal duties and gives users an understanding of disability in the workplace and how to comply with relevant legislation.
