Accessibility

Barrier Breakers can assist building owners / managers to meet their obligation to create a safe environment for all and safe egress of publicly owned and operated buildings for people with disabilities.

Practical: On-site inspection of the areas defined by the client by a paraplegic in a normal sized, non-motorised wheelchair.

Advanced: On-site inspection of the areas defined by the client undertaken by a two-person team, comprising a paraplegic in a normal sized, non-motorised wheelchair and a qualified architect.

Reports:  We supply you with a detailed report of any accessibility problems identified, how these measure up to the National Building Regulations, as well as any recommendations on how to solve / mitigate those problems.

Building managers, for example, may face the following questions when designing egress policies and procedures:

  • How does a person with a hearing impairment know when a fire alarm is activated?
  • How does a wheelchair user vacate an upper storey of a property if the passenger lifts cannot be used during evacuation
  • How would a person with learning difficulties understand complex escape signage?
  • Is safe egress for people with disabilities the responsibility of the Fire Service or building management?
  • What support does a person with a cognitive or mental health impairment require?
