Laboratory work analysis

To examine specific details of reasonable accommodation for students and researchers with disabilities, it is a legal requirement that constructive dialogue be held between the faculty member in charge of the laboratory and the person with the disability, which must also consider the person’s diagnosis, activities of daily living (ADL), and other aspects of the disability. We create worksheets as a tool to assist this process of dialogue by which reasonable accommodation is determined.

To map the degree of disability to the laboratory tasks, work analysis is conducted in collaboration with the principal investigators (PIs) from each area, and the essential tasks in the program of work to be performed are identified.
