1. Have a checklist of accessible features and facilities.
This includes having a list of all the accessible features in the facility, as well as a list of the facilities that are not accessible. It's important to have this information readily available so that any potential barriers can be addressed.
2. Assess the facility for accessibility.
This involves inspecting the facility to determine if it meets all the accessibility requirements set forth by the ADA. If any areas do not meet these requirements, then steps should be taken to address the issue.
3. Remove barriers to access as much as possible.
Barriers to access can include anything from stairs without ramps to doors that are difficult to open. By removing these barriers, individuals with disabilities will have an easier time accessing the facility.
4. Make sure all signage is ADA-compliant.
This includes making sure all signs are easy to see and understand, as well as being placed in the correct location.
5. Train staff on how to provide assistance to individuals with disabilities.
Staff members should be familiar with how to assist individuals with disabilities in order to make their visit as smooth as possible.
6. Ensure that all areas of the facility are accessible.
This includes ensuring that there are no areas of the facility that are inaccessible due to stairs or lack of ramps, for example.
7. Review the checklist regularly to ensure continued compliance with the ADA.
It's important to review the checklist regularly in order to ensure that the facility is still in compliance with all ADA requirements. This can help avoid any potential legal issues.
