Three significant shifts have been the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE); a move to working from home and the use of virtual platforms to communicate at meetings, events and training. These changes have brought opportunities for workers; however, they have also brought significant communication challenges to workers who rely on other senses to compensate for deafness or hearing loss.
Sponsored by UNISON Scotland’s Disabled Members’ Committee, Janis McDonald from the Alliance touches on the spectrum of deafness and discusses the impact of Covid-19 on communication in the workplace.
