star this property answer text <p>I am committed to ensuring that disabled people and disabled people’s organisations are engaged with and listened to. My diary for this year is filling up with meetings with disabled people and stakeholders, ranging from individual Access to Work customers to larger organisations such as Action on Hearing Loss.</p><p> </p><p>Access to Work has a regular stakeholder forum which brings together disabled people and disabled people’s organisations to discuss how the Access to Work offer works for our customers. This group includes representatives from organisations such as the Thomas Pocklington Trust, Versus Arthritis and the National Deaf Children’s Association. The group is due to meet next month and will discuss plans for future improvements for the Access to Work scheme.</p><p> </p><p>DWP also undertakes regular engagement with stakeholders on specific issues. For example, this week officials held a stakeholder workshop on Access to Work’s Tech Fund policy, exploring strategies for encouraging the take-up of assistive technology to meet support needs. Next week, we are hosting the latest in a series of stakeholder workshops to discuss the Access to Work offer for self-employed people.</p>

star this property answer text <p>We have undertaken significant reform of Access to Work, but there are still further opportunities for improvements and we are committed to listening to our customers and stakeholders.</p><p> </p><p>For example, to address points raised about the Access to Work self-employment customer journey in the DWP research report ‘Access to Work: Qualitative research with applicants, employers and delivery staff’, published in November 2018, we worked closely with customers and stakeholders to identify the issues and develop a new self-employment customer journey for freelancers and contractors.</p><p> </p><p>To support this work, we are also developing an Access to Work ‘Workplace Adjustments Passport’, comprising a current record of an Access to Work customer’s support needs. This ‘passport’ is designed to be shared with new employers and commissioners, so that Access to Work customers who change jobs or move between contracts can be sure that their support needs are known in advance and adjustments may be put in place swiftly.</p><p>We will be announcing the detail of these new reforms later in the year.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) holds a national dose register of classified radiation workers known as the Central Index of Dosage Information (CIDI). This register is maintained in accordance with the Council Directive 2013/59 Euratom, replacing earlier directives, including 96/29/Euratom. The definition of a classified radiation worker is a person who works with ionising radiation and who could be exposed to higher levels of ionising radiation during normal work and also under certain accident conditions. It is designated Approved Dosimetry Services (ADS’s), approved by HSE, that submit this radiation exposure information annually to CIDI.</p><p>The CIDI is only accessible by three authorised HSE personnel. Only ADS’s may request information for medical surveillance purposes (e.g. if a classified worker moves employer) and these requests are considered on a case-by-case basis. Only authorised persons within an ADS are able to submit annual returns to the CIDI database via a secure password protected portal and cannot access data held within the database itself.</p><p>Atomic Nuclear weapons testing by the UK took place before the establishment of CIDI. Therefore, CIDI does not contain any radiation exposure data for service personnel who may have been exposed to ionising radiation as a result of nuclear testing at the time.</p>
