Singapore: Workplace adaptations for visually impaired sensory analysts
Supporting the inclusion and employability of visually impaired people.
In their professional life, partially-sighted and blind people face the difficulty that not all workplaces are designed taking into account their impairment, which can sometimes prevent them from performing a job.
To tackle this issue, the Givaudan Foundation partnered with enthusiastic volunteers from Givaudan Singapore to carry out workplace adaptations that supports the inclusion of disabled people.
These adaptations are done with the guidance of a national non-governmental organisation whose aim is to help visually impaired acquire new skills and get better integration into society. Through this initiative, the Givaudan project team hopes to also professionally train partially-sighted and blind people as sensory analysts.
