The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) requires public bodies to promote equality of opportunity for disabled people. Keytools can provide advice and recommend products to help those with a disability in the workplace.

DDA Compliance / What is the DDA?

The DDA is:

"An Act that was enforced to make it unlawful to discriminate against disabled persons in connection with employment, the provision of goods, facilities and services or the disposal or management of premises; to make provision about the employment of disabled persons; and to establish a National Disability Council."
*Source: OPSI

As an employer you are
required to not treat a disabled person less favourably than you would treat others without a justifiable reason.

Keytools can help by providing suitable assistive and ergonomic equipment to aid users with a disability to access a computer. Below is a small section of the equipment we can supply to help in your workplace. Please visit our main shopping site for the full range or call us for advice.
