Access 101: Building Accessibility - EgressAbility™ and Inclusive Evacuations

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.
