Different Disabilities present different challenges
When developing and implementing an inclusive Health and Safety policy, consider the range of challenges that may be relevant:
- Mobility impairment affects the range or speed of movement to varying degrees.
- Sensory impairment affects the ability to gather information through the senses such as sight or hearing.
- Cognitive or mental health impairment affects the capacity to process information and react appropriately.
- With hidden disabilities, the stress of an emergency situation may trigger a condition such as asthma or heart problems.
