In a recent talk at the Thames Valley Branch of the Institution of Occupational Safety & Health, Watford Workshop Chairman Dr Gordon Sellers draws interesting conclusions on what employers can do and encourages companies to employ disabled people as:

- Reasonable adjustments can often be made to assist disabled and disadvantaged people to obtain and sustain mainstream employment.   - Financial assistance may be available through Access to Work, a publicly funded employment support programme that aims to help more disabled people start or stay in work. It can provide practical and financial support for people who have a disability or long term physical or mental health condition.   - Appeals are possible   Dr Sellers's full presentation can be seen on LinkedIn - see bit.ly/1RKH6Ex   Dr Sellers can be contacted at gordon@gordonsellers.co.uk or 07775 601320   www.watfordworkshop.co.uk
