The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA),now the Equalities Act 2010, protects the rights of people with disabilities.The law requires businesses to make ‘reasonable adjustments’ to their premises and to the operation of their business to ensure equal treatment of all employees, customers and visitors. Part of conforming to the DDA involves adequate and proper placement of dda signs around a business’ premises.
Legal requirements for dda signs vary considerably depending on the type of organisation and premises. Tactile and Braille signs are usually mandatory for emergency infomation in public areas.
Most visitors and employees welcome tactile Braille signs. Appropriately used DDA signs are effective for both sighted and visually impared people, and the use of standard symbols not only also aids blind non-braille readers, but also helps learning disabled and non-english language visitors to navigate your building.
Steve Marsh Design has considerable experience in specifying, supplying and fitting DDA compliant signage. We are pleased to advise you on the signage required.
