Is your station accessible? Some excellent checklists to find out

As I am fond of saying, “you don’t know what you don’t know”.  Thankfully when it comes to accessibility of our station buildings, documents and communications, others have done the work for us with these easy to use checklists:

  • AusCamps Association have made this fantastic resource for assessing access that includes background info on legislative requirements and suggestions for changes to improve access of marketing materials, signs and communication, emergency management,  public phones and transport, parking,  paths, buildings, doorways, stairs, ramps, floors, lighting, furniture, kitchens, bathrooms,  outdoor activities and more.  Very comprehensive and well laid out. Recommended. http://www.auscamps.asn.au/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/FullAccessibility_Checklist.pdf

 

 

 

  • The Australian Network on Disability Event Accessibility checklist signals what to look for when choosing an event venue, making invitations, marketing and communications, wayfinding, room arrangement, audio-visuals, presentations and catering: https://www.and.org.au/pages/event-checklist.html

 

 

 

If you don’t have the time, think about paying for an accessibility audit.  The Australian Human Rights Commission recommends http://www.access.asn.au

Enjoy!
