Support Structures for people with disabilities
Creating an inclusive workplace culture is everyone's responsibility. We have created a short guide to appropriate language and behaviours.
Finding infrastructures for people with reduced mobility
CERN’s GIS Portal provides information on the location of reserved parking places, wheelchair accessible restrooms and the path from the CERN entrance to the main building when ticking the acccording point of interest-box. A dedicated map of wheelchair accessible facilities is available in pdf format and at CERN's reception desk.
- Obtaining an access card: The Registration Service issuing access cards is located at the ground floor in bldg. 55 and therefore accessible.
- Obtaining a CERN computer account: This can be done via email. The supervisor requests the account data via email@example.com (link sends e-mail).
- Obtaining an office key: The supervisor turns in a request for a key before arrival of the member of personnel via firstname.lastname@example.org (link sends e-mail) stating that the receiver has a reduced mobility. The key will then be deposited at the Registration Service and handed over together with the CERN access card. At arrival, the Registration Service must be reminded to hand over the key.
- Procedure for registering an attendant to assist CERN Members of Personnel or a beneficiary of the Pension Fund needing assistance in mobility (see: 1.11 External - ACCO reason)
Only temporarily with reduced mobility?
The procedure to obtain a temporary "reduced mobility" parking permit in order to use parking spaces that are reserved for people with disabilities on the CERN site, can be found here.
CERN offers several IT tools for their employees to work remotely. Read more.
