The Disability Discrimination Act is a piece of legislation that promotes civil rights for disabled people and protects disabled people from discrimination.
How does this affect your premises?
Generally buildings and organisations must ensure their buildings are compliant with this legislation. This can included but not limited to Disable Toilet Alarms, Disabled Refuge systems for emergency situations, beacons and induction loop systems for those with a hearing impairment to notify them of emergencies or general announcements, and correct and appropriate signage.
Further information on some of the systems relevant to this act can be found on our other ‘life safety and emergency systems’
The above is a brief outline, further information on the RRO and DDA is available from government resource sites, however if you would like further advice or indeed would like one of our trained and specialist team to complete Fire Risk Assessments or DDA surveys on your behalf, please feel free to contact us
