Workplace for people with disabilities: From then on there is a right to reorganization Today\u0026#39;s workplaces are becoming more and more flexible , varied and colorful - people from all age groups and with the most varied of requirements work together in one office , which brings many advantages and new impetus. However, not everyone can cope with \u0026quot;normal\u0026quot; work equipment due to physical conditions and may need special equipment if they are visually impaired. In this paragraph we therefore look at when the employer has to make a workplace ergonomic and suitable for the disabled and what that can look like. Section 164, paragraph 4 of the ninth book of the Social Code stipulates that people with a severe disability have the right to a job that is suitable for the disabled. People are considered to be severely disabled if they have a degree of disability of 50 or more. There can be various causes for this, such as reduced mental performance or a physical disability. Which measures are required for a workplace suitable for the disabled always depends on the individual case. In the case of a visual impairment, for example, this would be a special keyboard or a larger screen to be able to see everything. For wheelchair users, on the other hand, the workplace would have to be made barrier-free, which may require major modifications. The employer is always obliged to approve the request for a workplace suitable for the disabled. It may not be rejected for financial or economic reasons. Only in cases where the costs are very high despite the support and the conversion has only little benefit, for example if the employee is only in the company for a short time, can a rejection take place in individual cases. In addition to a workplace that is suitable for the disabled , it is just as important for all other employees to have an ergonomic workplace . The height-adjustable desk from desqup, which promotes a back-friendly working posture, also contributes to this. With many practical functions such as stepless height adjustment and obstacle detection , it is the ideal companion for a healthy and sustainable working day.

Your arms should rest on the armrests at about a 90-degree angle, so your wrists are relaxed in front of the keyboard. In the best case, there is no tension in the forearm, as this becomes a problem on long days. The distance between your eyes and the screen should be about an arm\u0026#39;s length so that you can design your workplace ergonomically for your eyes.
