What's involved in a Workplace Assessment?
Assessments are normally carried out at the employee’s main place of work and usually last one to two hours. Ideally, the assessment should take place away from the staff member's workstation. Our assessor will meet with you and your employee to discuss any issues they are experiencing.
After the visit, the assessor will research the most appropriate and cost-effective equipment, support and reasonable adjustments for your workplace. These recommendations are then highlighted in a detailed report, which will usually include some very simple, low-cost changes.
