It’s Global Accessibility Awareness Day!

May 16, 2024

Have you wondered if your workplace is truly accessible for all? To celebrate Global Accessibility Awareness Day, here are some tips for you and your workplace to become more accessible:

1️. Lighting: Good lighting is essential for individuals living with vision loss. Everyone’s vision is different, so ensure your office is well-lit with adjustable lighting to accommodate different needs.
2️. Signage: High contrast, large print, and tactile signage can be essential to helping someone navigate independently around a workplace.
3️. Organisation: Keeping workspaces clutter-free and well-organised will reduce hazards and make it easier to move around safely.
4️. Tools: Offer assistive technology such as screen magnifiers or screen readers to accommodate for all vision levels.
5️. Seating: Offer adjustable seating options when arranging seating, such as providing ergonomic chairs and desks that can be customised for comfort and accessibility.
6️. Inclusion: Encourage open communication and mutual respect among colleagues to create a supportive and inclusive work environment by promoting empathy and understanding.

With these adjustments, it’s not just making changes, but building a more welcoming and accessible space for everyone.
