Disability Access Audit

 

 

Our Disability Access Audits are critical to meet the requirements of the Equality Act 2010, Approved Documentation of the Building Regulations and “Best Practice”. We will ensure that your practice will achieve 'outstanding' when the CQC calls. This is because Safety Desk Consulting make use of consultants with many years of experience. 

Disability Access Audits are a useful means of assessing the current state of accessibility and usability of buildings by disabled people. Buildings that have been designed or adapted to meet the access needs of people with different physical or mental impairments are likely to be more flexible and make it easier for employers to fulfill their duties under the Equality Act 2010.

 

The disability access  assessment will examine disabled access to ensure accessibility and usability of buildings by a wide range of potential users, including people with mobility and sensory disability


The audit will look at:

  • Approaches to the property.

  • Access points into the property.

  • Movement around the premises both horizontally and vertically.

  • Accessibility of amenities such as WCs and welfare facilities.

  • Means of escape including special evacuation strategies.

  • Building management.
