Charity offers sound advice

A free information pack has been produced by Action on Hearing Loss Scotland, to support employers in Arbroath recruiting staff with hearing loss.

The charity’s ‘Sound Advice’ guidance will be particularly useful to organisations who are hiring extra staff in the run up to Christmas.

The pack is the work of the charity’s ‘On the Move’ project and provides employers with best practice guidance on how to ensure recruitment processes are accessible for people who are deaf or hard of hearing and how to make the ‘reasonable adjustments’ that are required by the Equality Act 2010 for employees with hearing loss. It also gives information on where employers can get support for employees with hearing loss and communication tips.
