Use and Access

The Government’s social inclusion policy seeks to remove barriers that prevent people having an equal opportunity to participate fully and productively in all aspects of society. In order to ensure that this happens, all large organisations and their staff are required to abide by legislation such as the Disability Discrimination Act and to see that hardware access and use conforms with Health and Safety legislation.

Topics include:

  • Health and Safety issues surrounding the use of ICT

  • why organisations have to address access issues

  • Legal requirements placed on organisations, in particular, the Disability Discrimination Act

  • how staff can provide practical help to people with specific access requirements.

Target audience: HE/FE Library Staff, Public Library Staff, School Library Staff, Special Library Staff, Teachers, Teaching Assistants.

Price: £205 + VAT.

Date: 22 June, 2003
