The mining and minerals sector is one of the sectors with working conditions that have contributed to the increase in the number of people with disabilities as a result of mining related accidents.
The Mining Qualifications Authority (MQA) has identified a need to develop a Disability and Reasonable Accommodation Toolkit for the mining and minerals sector. The Disability and Reasonable Accommodation Toolkit is a tool that will assist companies in the mining and minerals sector to ensure that people with disabilities are incorporated into the sector.
The MQA will be hosting a workshop to address issues related to the inclusion of Learners with Disabilities into the sector.
The purpose of the workshop is to:
Guide employers to understand issues relating to the intake of employees and learners with disabilities for effective inclusion in the mining and minerals sector
Equip employers with cost effective and reasonable options for ensuring that employees access their worksites and improve accessibility for people with disabilities as well as the general public
The details for the workshop are as follows:
Date: Friday, 24 June 2011
Time: 08H30 to 14H00
Venue: Sunnyside Park Hotel, Parktown
