Disabled and Temporarily Disabled Checklist

It’s important to consider the very specific health and safety needs of more vulnerable staff including those with a disability. Use our checklist to make sure you’ve covered everything.

What’s covered?

The Disabled and Temporarily Disabled Checklist covers everyday needs including access to the workplace and facilities, the suitability of furniture and emergency evacuation. It also helps you to think through the management arrangements which have been made including risk assessments, seeking occupational health advice if needed, and consulting with the member of staff. Completing and reviewing the checklist at suitable intervals will demonstrate that you have taken due consideration of the particular risks to the individual concerned.
