People with disabilities have an essential role to play in the modern workplace as they offer a unique perspective.
Diversity at work has gained more traction over the years however employers are still hesitant to hire people with disabilities due to a lack of understanding.
The Chemical Industries Education & Training Authority (CHIETA) in consultation with the Chambers, has responded to this need by developing a Disability Toolkit to assist with understanding disability in the workplace.
The initiative aims to promote the employment of people with disabilities and improve worker participation.
The Disability Toolkit has been developed with the objective of equipping the sector with the applicable definitions, some key concepts on the subject and the legislative framework surrounding disability in the workplace.
