The Equality Act 2010 seeks, within the Act and in particular Schedule 4 of the Act, to make buildings, venues and premises accessible to all and is now a major part of any new build works and renovation projects. Furthermore, consideration needs to be given to what reasonable
efforts can be made to ensure existing premises are also accessible.
Compliance with the Equality Act 2010 as a whole is also part of the practical delivery of your equal opportunities policy, and will ensure your business remains able to attract the right person for the job, regardless of their physical abilities.
Compliance does not necessarily mean major works, cost and upheaval, and in many cases practical solutions can be found. Having worked in a range of buildings, old and new, to assess their compliance, we have built up a portfolio of clever, practical, affordable and usable solutions that we can help you implement at your premises.
To organise a review of your premises with practical advice on how to manage
any impediments to full compliance, please contact us today.
