Best Practice

Best Practice – An Overview

You should aim to implement best practice for all your employees, whether they are a person with a disability or not.

In relation to employing people with disabilities, best practice includes:

  • providing disability awareness training,
  • ensuring premises are accessible ,
  • providing accessible technologies ,
  • ensuring that company policies are inclusive and accessible (Handbook, PEEP / Health and Safety),and
  • recruiting a diverse and inclusive workforce.

There are no current specific accreditations or awards in Ireland nor is there a legislative code of practice specific to employing persons with disabilities. (National Disability Authority, January 2016.)
