ASN has developed a website that provides information such as Fact Sheets, Checklist and DWG files of the requirements for disability access as required by the current Australian Standards. Standards such as, AS1428.1 – 2009, AS1428.2 – 1992, AS2890.6 – 2009 and the Building Codes of Australia.
The Fact Sheets are compiled to be easy-to-read and are aimed at providing basic information about the requirements for disability access. Fact Sheets like doorway widths and circulation spaces are provided in a one page hand out style. If you would like further information about these Fact Sheets please feel free to visit the site and ask us a question either through this site or the www.disabilitystandards.com.au website.

The Realistic Race is an interactive fast paced training session for groups of 20 or more. Based on the Amazing Race concept, participants “adopt” a disability and then compete in a Realistic Race, where they complete challenges in order to gain their next clue. The concept allows participants to, for a few hours, experience the reality of living with a disability. The training package includes a short presentation by one of ASN’s professional presenters, the Realistic Race itself, and a debrief and group experience sharing time.
The ultimate aim of the Race is that there would be a culture change within organisations, where people understand disability and will then do something about making their organisation discrimination free, accessible, and welcoming. The Realistic Race can be run anywhere in Australia. Participating organisations of the Realistic Race all receive a DVD of their race, and each team member receives a customized T-Shirt.For a full quote or an information pack please contact the Realistic RACE Team.
