If you own a business and/or facility then you have a legal obligation to uphold ADA standards. While ADA compliance may seem like a simple concept, many facilities have one or more of these common ADA violations:
- Stairs – Violations relating to stairs are a common error that businesses may make. From missing striping to lack of signage and more, stairs need to be ADA compliant.
- Restrooms – All restrooms should be built with accessible stall dimensions, grab bars, and fixtures.
- Parking Spaces – Parking spaces need to be a specific slope and dimension to ensure optimal accessibility.
- Egress Signs – Signs require tactile or braille to accommodate all clients. Common errors include missing or incorrect signage.
- Counters – Oftentimes building/businesses violate ADA counter requirements related to height & width.
- Parking Signs – Amongst the most common ADA errors include non-reflective, faded, and/or missing parking signage to indicate handicap parking.
- Accessibility Routes – All accessibility routes need to have detectable warnings, specific dimensions, and meet slope requirements.
- Swimming Pools – All public swimming pools need wheelchair lifts to accommodate individuals with limited mobility.
- Ramps – Wheelchair ramps need to comply with length and slope ADA requirements. They also need to have handrails for maximum safety.
- Doors – Doors need to be a certain width to accommodate individuals in wheelchairs. They also need functional kick-plates.
