Workplace welfare facilities and healthy working environment
As an employer you must protect the safety and health of everyone in your workplace. This includes people with disabilities. You must provide welfare facilities and a healthy environment for your employees.
Welfare facilities include:
- toilets that are accessible for disabled employees and visitors
- an area to wash
- clean drinking water
You will also need to consider lighting, ventilation and temperature for your employees in their working environment.
