Outdoor Workstations

Outdoor workstations typically involve dealing with inclement weather, including extreme hot and cold temperatures. They may also deal with rugged terrain or environments that require personal protective equipment. Numerous types of equipment are available to accommodate those with motor, mobility, hearing, vision, and cognitive impairments who work at an outdoor workstation. For these types of situations, a job accommodation may involve modifying the way an essential job function is typically done and can include purchasing one or more pieces of equipment. Here are some examples of equipment that JAN suggests for these situations. For additional information, visit JAN's other resources under A to Z and use JAN's Searchable Online Accommodation Resource (SOAR) or contact JAN directly for what you are needing.
