This talk is part of the 'Building Accessibility' series and discusses the need to provide an inclusive approach to building design and evacuation planning, to meet the needs of all occupants. Australian society is changing, we are living longer, extending our working lives and increasingly making our homes in taller buildings. Additionally, in 2011 building and disability legislation changed to make it mandatory to provide fully accessible workplaces and public spaces. However, the need to get everybody out in an emergency has generally been overlooked. This presentation argues a case to develop the concept of egressability to go hand in hand with accessibility.

Communication Access Training:

Organisations that are providing a service to the general public need to be aware of potential barriers to communication.

  • Over 1.2 million Australians have a communication disorder.
  • Over 5 million Australians speak a language other than English.
  • Over 4 million Australians have a hearing loss.
  • Living with these challenges can increase anxiety and isolation.
  • Lack of awareness and understanding of these challenges can impact effective service delivery.

Designed to facilitate and strengthen confident communication, AccessAbilityAustralia have developed a Communication Access Training package to help build inclusive communities and to support organisations develop a responsive service delivery.

This training will extend your services, add a new tier to customer care and educate for lasting change.

Our goal is to create awareness, break down barriers, introduce alternative and augmentative communication tools available that help people to share their message and to understand what people are telling them, equip your staff with the confidence and knowledge to engage with your customers as well as provide opportunity to evaluate new learnings in an in-class practice session.
