HSE publishes non-statutory guidance on creating inclusive workplaces

25 September marks the start of National Inclusion Week 2023, with the theme of ‘take action, make impact’. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is urging the transport industry to take this opportunity to reflect on how they can create workplaces where everyone is truly supported, valued and empowered.

The transport industry is a vital part of the UK economy, and it is essential that everyone who works in the sector has the opportunity to thrive. HSE’s Work Right for Everyone campaign provides guidance and support to help employers create inclusive workplaces where disabled workers and workers with long-term health conditions can reach their full potential.

HSE has published non-statutory guidance on creating inclusive workplaces, containing simple core principles and practical examples. The guidance is designed to help employers create workplaces that are safe and supportive, enabling disabled workers and workers with long-term health conditions to thrive.

HSE has also developed a Talking Toolkit to help employers and managers structure conversations with disabled workers and workers with long-term health conditions. Creating a supportive and enabling workplace starts by having conversations to open channels for workers to speak up, raise concerns or discuss how arrangements at work may be preventing them from achieving their goals at work.

HSE encourage you to think about your workplace and really consider the support available to colleagues and workers. Visit the Work Right for Everyone campaign website.
