Understanding Access Legislation and Universal Design in Buildings

This one day course provides participants with an understanding of the wide range of universal access requirements related to buildings that must be considered in planning, design, development, maintenance and upgrade of facilities. The course includes:

• An overview of universal access and design principles
• An overview of relevant legislation and Australian Standards
• An overview of universal access issues – What’s and Why’s
• Practical perspectives relating to universal access barriers and solutions
• Universal Access Guidelines for Buildings

Utilising a variety of learning techniques, the course highlights the wide range of challenges that are experienced by people with various access issues in utilising buildings. This specifically includes mobility, vision, hearing, intellectual and cognitive issues. In addition the challenges faced by all users of buildings and facilities are discussed and solutions identified.

The course importantly provides a practical framework for understanding relevant legislative requirements including the Disability Discrimination Act 1992, the Disability (Access to Premises – Buildings) Standards 2010 and the Australian Standards for Access and Mobility as well as ‘best practice’ universal access requirements.
The course identifies the key universal access elements to consider in buildings and facilities with an emphasis on solutions. All of the key universal access considerations relating to these key elements are explored.

This course aligns with day 1 of the nationally recognised - Conduct a Building Access Audit course.
