As companies are striving to employ more and more employees that are in any way ‘physically or sensory challenged’, the need has arisen to assess whether the company’s premises are actually suited to accommodate such employees.
Especially companies that are established in older buildings may not be equipped to guarantee an employee’s safety in this regard. In an access audit an analysis is made regarding access to, on and from the company’s premises for the employees. Keeping building regulations and international best practices in mind, an access audit provides a company with feedback regarding the suitability and safety of it's facilities to accommodate these employees.
Depending on the specific nature of the physical and/or sensory challenge or challenges, the following areas are analysed accordingly:
- specialised work station set ups
- board rooms
- coffee corners
- lunch facilities
- emergency routes.
|‘ErgoFocus provided us with great service. We required in-depth scan done to establish whether our building can accommodate physically challenged, visually and hearing impaired people. They kept to agreed timelines, understood our brief and provided a comprehensive report. All in all, we were happy and would gladly refer others to the business’ Tshepiso Chocho, Human Capital Generalist - SASRIA|
