Guide Dogs NSW/ACT Orientation and Mobility (O&M) Specialists work with clients to enable safe and independent access to and around the workplace.
In addition to providing Orientation & Mobility training, O&M specialists teach practical strategies to maximise a client’s use of their remaining vision so that they are able to perform their employment duties. Where necessary, these specialists will recommend changes to workplace environments such as adding handrails, modifying lighting and relocating work spaces to more appropriate areas.
Guide Dogs can also provide employers and colleagues with basic training and awareness of vision impairment with a focus on promoting safe, accessible and productive workplaces for people who are blind or vision impaired.
