Act now - don't pay later. Take heed of the Disability Discrimination Act

Summary

By 1 October 2004, changes to the Disability Discrimination Act require over two million service providers to make their premises more user-friendly to Britain's 8.6 million disabled people. The act applies to employers and service providers, requiring them to ensure that disabled people are able to use the services as easily as an able-bodied person. This includes improving physical access ( doors, etc ), having appropriate access control systems, and providing induction loop hearing systems, and visual or tactile fire warning in addition to traditional audible systems.
