Call for support: International study on accessibility at the workplace

The German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV) is conducting a comparative survey to identify best practices and suitable examples on improving the overall accessibility of workplaces, which reduces the need for specific workplace adaptations to enable the employment of a disabled individual.

The objective of this 2018-2019 study is to find international experiences for an extensively accessible working environment that can subsequently be offered for implementation to German enterprises and their associations.

The survey has been commissioned by the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs based on the Federal Government’s National Action Plan 2.0 for the implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
