A workplace assessment takes place on-site, or with recent safety protocols, via phone or video chat, with the employee and perhaps a manager. A consultant will speak to the employee about their job and what it entails, the working environment, and any hurdles they may be facing. They may even test different assistive products to see what could make their work environment more accommodating.
After the assessment, the employer will be given a follow-up report that highlights different ways the workplace can be improved and create an environment where everyone can communicate and actively participate. Everyone has unique needs, so the recommendations will vary from employee to employee.
Alternate forms of communication or assistive products could be recommended depending on the situation. These may include the use of phone amplifiers, telephone headsets, voice-to-text phones, wireless microphones, and background noise reducers.
