Supporting Persons with Disabilities: A roadmap for Canada's trucking and logistics industry
Physical Demands Assessments (PDAs)
Physical Demands Assessments (PDAs) identify the physical job requirements for specific occupations. Once employers are aware of the physical requirements of the job, current employees and new hires can be assessed to determine if they can perform the physical duties or if there are potential accommodations and modifications that can be put in place to allow workers to not only perform, but thrive, in their roles.
Integrating Accommodation and Accessibility into the Workplace
The trucking workforce is changing; Trucking HR Canada has made the case for diversity in Canada’s trucking industry. Canada’s diverse workforce includes a wealth of often-overlooked workers who can help meet the trucking industry’s current and future labour needs; this includes people with disabilities.
Research shows that employers who reach out to a more diverse range of employees benefit from improvements to their bottom line, lower turnover and absenteeism and enhanced productivity.
