The Distability Discrimination Act 2004 (DDA)
The DDA states that reasonable provision shall be made to ensure that buildings are accessible and usable by all those who could be expected to use the buildings.
Who does it effect and how?
The DDA affects both the design of new buildings as well as existing buildings being used in the provision of goods, facilities and services. If your organisation or business does not address access issues in and around a building, the implications can be far reaching. You can be brought to task by the local authority, a visitor or even by an employee.
