The inability to perform all or part of one’s occupational duties because of an accident or illness. This can be due to a sickness, injury or mental condition and does not necessarily have to have been caused by the job itself.

It is the responsibility of the employer to make any adjustments required to allow a person with disabilities to perform and succeed in their role. At the core of this must be an understanding and confirmation that the employee isn't in any way disadvantaged in terms of access and resources as a result of their disability.

Disability programs provide supplements that enable employers to purchase and install the required equipment to enable employees to complete their work despite any medical conditions or other disabilities.

It's important that all, including people with disabilities, are given equal opportunities to succeed in the workplace.
