Having a workplace that is accessible benefits everyone. It allows a person with disability to work effectively and accessibility often makes the workplace better for all staff members – for example, automatically opening doors.
The social model of disability says people are disabled by barriers like inaccessible buildings, not having the right technology or people’s attitudes (like assuming people with disability can’t do certain things). Removing these barriers gives people with disability more choice and control, and it unlocks their ability to be productive employees.
