Abstract

<p>Promoting employment of persons with disabilities in universities is important not only for fulfilling the social responsibilities of universities but also for constructing safe campuses and improving work efficiency based on diverse perspectives. It is also decided that the legal employment rate will be raised in 2021, and expansion of works covered by people with disabilities and creation of rewarding jobs are required. On the other hand, safe workplace environment should be secured. In this study, we conducted interview surveys with three national universities in Japan and Nagoya University on the current state of safety management on employment of disabled persons at universities. In addition, we analyzed cases of accidents/incidents occurred at Nagoya University. Based on these results, we improved and implmented the safety education for the employees with disabilities working in Nagoya University. As an effort to expand works covered by persons with disabilities, we have assigned new tasks for them using personal computer that had been carried out by technical staff, and they have been doing the tasks successfully. We believe that we have contributed to improving the workplace safety and to making our university more attractive workplaces for them through these efforts.</p>
