Providing Reports for Colourblind Employees

During National Inclusion Week an anonymous survey of the project staff, including sub-contractors was carried out to ascertain the quantity of colour blind staff. It transpired that 24%, of those who responded to the survey, were colour blind.

The gene that is responsible for the condition is on the X chromosome and this is the reason why more men are affected than woman. With the construction industry being male dominated it was expected that we would have a higher percentage than some other industries.

After discussing how their condition affects their work it was discovered that it often led to staff being unable to read and assimilate reports where colour was used.

A new way of presenting the information with a different selection of colours was devised with collaboration of those who are producing the reports and the affected staff members.
