For some disabled people cars are the only practical way of getting from A to B so accessible parking is a major consideration for them in choosing their service providers. The provision of accessible bays of course is dependent upon many things including location, space, use of building etc, and if you are a service provider that cannot supply on-site parking for one reason or another it would be a good idea to find out where the nearest accessible bays are to you and your service, so you can let your customers know. If there aren’t any nearby, consider approaching your local authority about improving the situation.
If you do provide on-site parking at least one of these spaces should be designated for disabled people and it should be as near to the principal entrance to the building as possible. Bays should be level and should be wide enough to allow both car doors to be opened to allow disabled drivers and their passengers to transfer to a wheelchair. There should also be space enough lengthwise to allow for tail loading.

Working Safely is
a one-day course for staff from any sector with no supervisory or managerial
responsibility. It provides grounding in the essentials of health and safety in
all industries including construction– everyone at work should have an understanding
of why they must ‘work safely’ and this course offers exactly that.
Who is the Managing Safely
This one-day course is for
delegates who have already completed the full Managing Safely course. Delegates get to refresh their knowledge on the key parts
of the full Managing Safely course by relating
them to a plan-do-check-act safety and health management system, with
leadership at the heart of it all.
It is recommended that refreshers are completed every 3 years.
If your certificate ran out several years ago you can still sit the refresher. If you are not sure contact me via the contact page by clicking here
