Disability Access Audit Checklist And Control Sheet
From 2004 organisations that provide goods and services to the public have
been required by law to ensure that disabled people can access their
premises and use their services. The service provider is required to carry
out "reasonable adjustments" to the physical barriers within their business
that currently prevent access to enable a disabled person to use their
business in carrying out their day-to-day activities.
The recommended first step is identification of the barriers, which should
be followed up by a detailed action plan.
This Checklist and Control Sheet is the first document to be used when
undertaking a Premises Disability Access Audit. It contains a list of
"areas/amenities" from Approach To Premises to Building Management. 17
specific descriptions are provided for in the form, and each of these
descriptions is supported by a separate Disability Access Audit Form.
Spacing is available for additional "areas/amenities", which can be
supported by completing the Disability Access Audit - Blank Format.
This Disability Access Audit Form is not exhaustive. These descriptions can
be deleted or expanded upon depending on your building - see instruction
Actions to be taken as result of the audit should be recorded and monitored
by using the Disability Access Audit Action Plan.
