How can I find out if my new workplace is safe?

ANSWER

A counselor can observe you at work while you do specific tasks to see if you can safely perform a job. He may then recommend a change in your duties or your work site to improve safety.

Keep in mind that your rights are protected by a law called the Americans with Disabilities Act. In general, it means employers need to make "reasonable accommodations" for any disabilities you have because of your MS.
