A bit about me first, I am a bilateral below knee amputee due to meningococcal septicaemia back in March 2006.
My question is
I have been with my current employer for nearly 22 years the last 13/14 as an office based catering manager, however due to economic circumstances my role no longer exists and my employer want me to accept a different role which would involve working in a staff restaurant preparing, cooking and serving food, I have grave reservations about accepting the position as I can see potential health and safety issues relating to my disability. slips, trips, falls and any number of other problems.
Standing for any length of time is very uncomfortable on my lower spine, I am not sure about changing shoes as and when required as this causes discomfort until I become accustomed to the change in posture that is needed, medications, and also I have short term memory issues.
Anyone who has any experience of these issues any advice would be greatly appreciated.
