Did you know that the owner of a property is liable for claims under the Disability Discrimination Act?
This means that claims can be made against the owner by any individual with a disability that feels as though they have been discriminated against in relation to access to the building.
Access is becoming increasingly important as one (1) in four (4) people have a disability condition to some degree.
It is important that we take into consideration possible access issues that may arise both now and in the future.
Having Accredited Access Consultants on board will ensure that your building complies (meets requirements) and is accessible for all people.
ASN offers an access appraisal service to ensure there is as much consideration taken for a range of possible circumstances and that all buildings and designs/plans comply with relevant and current legislation.
Legislation supporting the actions of ASN consultants are as follows:
- Disability Discrimination Act
- Australian Standards
- Building Codes of Australia
- Equal Opportunity Act - (Victoria Only)
If you would like an Accredited Access Consultant to conduct an Access Appraisal of your building and/or designs/plans please contact ASN.
