The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) came into force in October 2004, and applies to companies of all sizes. The overall aim of the Act was to counter the discrimination that many disabled people face.

Many companies are choosing to ignore the new regulations, but in doing so they're taking the risk of being sued or having to take expensive remedial measures later.

At RhD, we believe in being pro-active in considering the needs of disabled people. This goes beyond the obvious, such as access ramps and accessible toilets to encompass issues like how the colour and texture of finishes can affect the ability of people with sight difficulties to negotiate their way around your premises.

By considering issues such as this when planning a refit, you're making a clear statement that you're a caring, non-discriminatory organisation.
