Access Audits
An access audit is the first step towards improving accessibility in a built environment. It is an important tool to identify infrastructural barriers that may make the building or facility less favorable to use by persons with disabilities. The access audit provides a base line assessment on which access solutions are suggested. The scope of an audit includes assessment of approach to the building, parking areas, access aisles to the main entrance, pedestrian pathways, Entrance in to the building, internal components of the building & periphery, toilets, signage, level changes through ramps or lifts etc. In case of street design or transportation systems, the audit covers the pedestrian networks, street crossings/ intersections, kerb ramps, traffic signals, table tops, pedestrian islands, access to transport nodes & seamless connectivity, accessibility to & within the rolling stock and related services on an equal footing with others. The access audits are done keeping in mind the needs of all users.  Please write to cabe.access@gmail.com for your access audit requirements.

Access Awareness / Audit Training

Govt. of India has published Guidelines on Accessibility in built environment that prescribe mandatory design requirements for all public buildings and buildings open to public. Often the practicing professionals (architects, interior designers, engineers) are not well acquainted with these requirements, hence the need of such training for professionals. As these requirements are mandatory, students of architecture, urban planning, interior design, civil engineering, rehabilitation professionals or NGOs working with people with disabilities also greatly benefit from such /similar training. Length & Content of the Training programs can be customized keeping in mind the educational background of the trainees and specific expectations.   Please write to cabe.access@gmail.com for your access training requirements.

Disability Equality Sensitization

Prior awareness & sensitization on disability & diversity helps organizations in meeting their legal, social & business obligations with confidence. A staff with such an exposure is better equipped & more confident to deal with disabled customers/ colleagues. Such sensitization programs can be tailor-made for each industry such as hospitality;  white collar/ Blue collar set ups; transportation systems such as Buses, railways, airlines/ aerodrome operators, taxi operators or para-transit systems; judiciary, legal & para-legal ; Primary/ Middle & Higher Education managers & educators; doctors & para-medical staff etc.
