Since October 1999, people who provide goods or services (‘service providers’) have been required to make ‘reasonable adjustments’ for disabled people such as providing extra help or providing changes to the way they provide their services. Service providers were also required by October 2004 to make ‘reasonable adjustments’ to the physical features of their premises to overcome physical barriers to their access.
The audit will include:
- Auditing each part of the building(s) and highlighting shortcomings and barriers to access.
- Measurements where appropriate including weight resistance of doors, widths of doors and corridors, height variations and gradients.
- Recommendations for altering physical barriers.
