Health and safety in the work place

You may have concerns about health and safety when employing someone who’s disabled. You must not allow this to discriminate against a disabled employee.

You may need to review your risk assessment to make sure it covers any risks. The Access to Work scheme can help you work out what changes you need to make.

Find out more about health and safety for disabled people and their employers on Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
