ASN has developed a series of checklist that are to be used for the purposes of conducting on-site access appraisals of the built environment. An access appraisal seeks to assess the level of disability access throughout a building. The access appraisal is conducted against the set requirements as stated in Australian legislation, such as, AS1428.1 - 2009.
This is a comprehensive list of manufacturers and suppliers of disability access and mobility related products. A great resource for individuals who are responsible for specifying fittings and fixtures and for those who are new to providing resources for people with a disability condition.
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.
The Access Xpress home gym has been developed by Access Solutions National P/L (ASN) www.asnpl.com.au
The design and concept began in 2004 and was due to the extremely expensive options available that were limited in the range of exercise options that could be performed with the piece of equipment.
ASN set about to develop a home gym that would be compact and offer unlimited versatility, and exercise opportunities.
