Workplace self-assessment

A free digital tool was developed for local governments to self-assess the suitability of their workplace for staff with disability. The tool helped local governments identify areas they could strengthen, such as physical access, effective management practices and the organisation’s inclusive culture.

To access the digital tool, please read the ‘Workplace self-assessment – digital tool user guide’. Alternatively, download a hard copy of the workplace self-assessment checklist. Please note the hard copy checklist does not have the reporting functionality and capability of the digital tool.
