The purpose of an access audit is to carry out a detailed appraisal of the accessibility of an environment, its facilities and any services delivered from it. It is important to note that an access audit is not a checklist of guidelines that need to be adhered to. For example, an audit of the built environment should consider the day to day running of the building, the building type, management issues, maintenance and safety as well as the checklist of building design criteria.
This is not only for buildings where the public have access but for all staff and future staff members.
Omega Surveying Services can help clients realise a fully accessible building for all staff and clients now and into the future.
