When considering circulation routes think about the things people have to negotiate once they’re on-site to get around your building or premises. For example:
- are corridors wide enough and free from obstruction?
- do doors open into corridors?
- are corridors well lit and well signposted?
- are corridors level?
- are internal doors wide enough?
- are doors easy to open and/or close?
- do doors have vision panels in them?
- is door furniture appropriate?
- is the colour scheme in the building an aid or a hindrance to visitors?
- are stairs and handrails appropriate?
- are lifts easy to use?
- are lifts big enough?
- are lift call buttons and controls adequate?
This list is not exhaustive but does give you a starting point when considering the accessibility of your own building/premises.
