AT Services for Employers

AT is about supporting employees at work, preventing the development of work-related injury such as Repetitive Strain Injury, and promoting good practices in a wide range of work settings.

Assistive Technology is a tool, not just for new employees with disabilities, but for all employees who wish to maximise their potential at work. AT is a resource for employers and employees who wish to prevent the development of work-related injuries, and for employees who acquire a disability during their working life. It is also a powerful tool for potential employees with disabilities who have yet to secure employment. 

We offer a range of services for employers and managers detailed below. 

Workplace Assessment Service

Research shows that 60% of adults would benefit from adjusting their computer or workstation in some way. If left unresolved, issues can lead to employees struggling to fulfil the demands of their job and/or experiencing lengthy periods of sick leave, at a cost to both employer and employee.  

Ergonomic and Assistive Technology assessments are important as they form an integral part of a good occupational health and safety management plan. Using both mainstream and specialised solutions to address the issues highlighted in the assessment can help employees in current or new roles, create job opportunities for individuals with disabilities, and create an inclusive working environment.  

Enable Ireland’s Workplace Assessment service can assist employers to assess their employees’ ergonomic and assistive technology needs, looking at both their abilities and their job specification, recommend solutions and help provide training and support to put these solutions in place. 
Grants may be available to assist towards the costs of assessment, training and solutions.
