30 sec inclusion training - Elevators

  1. 1. Hello! This is your 30- Second Inclusion Training Elevators Brought to you by the Office of Faith Based andCommunity Initiatives (OFBCI). Click here to begin
  2. 2. People with all kinds of disabilities mayencounter obstacles with elevators. Which is the most accessible? Elevators use a digital read out for floor numbers and a panel that has a flat design behind a glass pane. Elevator panels have raised numbers and Braille and the elevator has a tone system to identify the floor it is on. The elevator has raised numbers and is located at shoulder height so that it is easily accessible..
  3. 3. Good Effort BUT Please Try AgainWhile a digital read out is great, there also needs to be tones for each floor so that people with low/no vision will knowwhat floor the elevator is on. The panel also needs to haveraised letters or Braille labels for accessibility for all people.
  4. 4. Come on… You can do it!While the raised numbers are good, the control panel needs to be between 15 and 48 inches high so that people who are inwheelchairs can reach the panel comfortably and without doing injury to themselves.
  5. 5. Great Job! You got it, this is the best answer. Elevators need to have labels/audible indicators for people who are blind or deaf. The controls need to be easily accessible in their labels and free fromobstacles placed in front of them on both the inside and outside of the elevator. Finally, they need to be wheelchair accessible and serve all levels not ramped.
