Our team will only be too happy to help and can carry out a full Access Audit of your premises to ensure you are ticking all the right boxes. We don’t want you to be caught out with legal action for non-compliance so get in touch today for some expert help.
Our Access Audits are designed to assess your premises or environment to ensure that all provisions for disabled access are in place. Our Access Consultants have a trained eye and first-hand experience of disability issues. They will give you lots of professional advice regarding legislation compliance and how to promote access for all.
Our Access Audits cover a wide range of physical barriers and are the most comprehensive method of evaluating your environment. Each recommendation in our audit report is given a priority in accordance with bench marking standards set out in current and future legislation in your country of operation.
Don’t worry; we won’t just leave you with a list of our recommendations. We include an achievable action plan with each of our audits so that you can start planning your disability access provisions immediately. We will work closely with you to find the most cost effective solutions and to measure the outcome of each recommendation once implementation is complete.
We recommend that regular Access Audits are undertaken to ensure you continue to operate in compliance with the disabled access legislation. This will also help to reprioritise recommendations especially if there have been changes in the use of your building or in legislation.
Get in touch today. Our Access Audits are very cost effective and are inclusive of preparation work, site visits and a full audit report.
