Summary, originally published by Epilepsy Action
A new Employer Toolkit has been launched this week by Epilepsy Action to better support people with epilepsy in the workplace. This follows what the charity calls “a dire need for more understanding of the condition” at work.
The new toolkit is designed to give employers the confidence to help staff with epilepsy. It includes templates to provide support, assess risks and talk about epilepsy. It also offers descriptions of a range of different seizure types, as well as access to detailed first-aid videos.
