  • Goals of Workshop: Start w/ what is not the goal – To make y’all experts in Codes & Regulations by the time you leave. (UNLESS ALREADY) Understand where they came from, why we have them, how and when they apply & are enforced & how to get information. Also understand where they are headed. Take away something that will help you in your job (even if one little fact) & have some fun!!! THOUGHT ABOUT HOW TO MAKE A WORKSHOP ON CODES AND REGULATIONS FUN . . . HERE’S WHAT I CAME UP WITH. SYNERGY - MAKE OUR OWN FUN, ASK QUESTIONS, SHARE EXPERIENCES, INTERACT – LEARN FROM PEERS.
  • BEGIN WITH A LITTLE BIT OF LECTURING & MAYBE EVEN A BIT OF PREACHING – BUT END WITH INTERACTION

    Top 10 ADA/Accessibility Violations GMU FM-403: Class Six – Env. & ADA Issues Accessibility Issues (ADA)
  • Accessibility All existing “public accommodation” facilities (including; hospitals, theaters, retail, restaurants, offices where the public will visit, etc.) are bound by ADA’s “readily achievable barrier removal” requirement, and are therefore legally required to do anything they reasonably can to remove physical barriers to accessibility at any time in the facilities life, regardless of whether renovation or remodeling is underway. GMU FM-403: Class Six – Env. & ADA Issues Accessibility Issues (ADA) Public Accommodation
  • Accessibility A public entity must ensure that individuals with disabilities are not excluded from services, programs, and activities because existing buildings are inaccessible. State or local government programs, when viewed in their entirety, must be readily accessible. This standard is known as “program accessibility” . Public entities do not necessarily have to make each of their existing facilities accessible. GMU FM-403: Class Six – Env. & ADA Issues Accessibility Issues (ADA) Program Accessibility (Govt.)
