Access Training – The Equality Act

The Equality Act is examined in some detail as part of this website but our dedicated course will give you greater insight into what the legislation demands. We don’t do chapter and verse but we do make sure we cover the provisions of the Act that are relevant to you.

The Equality Act was introduced to provide protection throughout society against many forms of discrimination. At About Access we only deal with the Act from the point of view of disability. It will look at the terms of the Act, which people are defined as disabled, what sort of preventative and remedial measures are considered reasonable, what the various duties are for staff and visitors and what the impact is on local authorities and businesses. The duration of the course is flexible.

About Access provides training in different ways, from an informal meeting with members of a trade association or professional body, to specific issues around disability or the built environment. It might be delivered to a range of businesses off-site, generating valuable interaction and enabling them to learn from each other’s experience, or it might be in-house, direct to clients at their own premises.

We offer audit training, disability awareness training, user needs, disability provisions within the Equality Act. It can be prompted by fresh guidance on disability issues, new premises, changed layout of premises, new staff. It is relevant to staff at all levels from senior management to shop-floor and customer-facing staff.
