Among the 42.8 million people with disabilities of working age in the EU, only around half are currently employed. It is crucial for workplaces to promote good health and provide support for individuals with disabilities to enter or re-enter the workforce and stay in employment.

The European Commission’s Disability Employment Package strives to attain equal access to the labour market for persons with disabilities. EU-OSHA contributes by offering relevant information and resources.

Take a moment to explore our new web section on workers with disabilities and check out a large collection of resources in the OSHWiki article Ill health, disability, employment and return to work.

Embracing a diverse workforce is essential to fostering safer and healthier workplaces!
