How to Make Your Business Wheelchair Accessible

Ensuring your business provides access for all will help create a high service experience for your customers, as well as compliance with the Australian lift code.

According to the Australian Government, new buildings must comply with both the National Construction Code and the Disability Standards when they are constructed. Older buildings must comply with these standards when the owner or business occupant carries out major renovations. See here for further information.

Having your building be deemed as compliant can include the use of accessible amenities, removable seating, staff training and lifts or ramps.
