Corporate Social Responsibility Disability Access

How Equal Access can help

Equal Access recognises that organisations have a social responsibility to minimise their impact on the environment and to maximise the effective use of resources. They also have a legal and moral responsibility to ensure their workplaces provide diversity, equity and inclusion; and ensuring that workplaces are accessible is part of that responsibility. Additionally, in today’s tight job market, such initiatives can even attract potential employees as well!

Equal Access takes its environmental responsibility seriously and so behaves in as environmentally friendly a way as possible. Our Access Audits are undertaken electronically using software that allows our consultants to review, scale and check dimensions without the need to print large-scale drawings.   Equal Access has developed a proprietary cloud-based auditing tool, AccessCheck® that is used on a tablet/iPad that is, which ensures our access audit process is truly paperless, respecting the environment and helping our client meet their Corporate Social Responsibility and environmental sustainability.

Key Services

Our key services that assist organisations in meeting their Corporate Social Responsibilities include:

Our Commitment

Equal Access is committed to sustainability:

  • We strive to reduce our carbon footprint and ensure the responsible use of energy throughout our organisation: We have installed Solar Panels for electricity supply and LED lighting throughout. All equipment, lights and climate controls are turned off at the end of the day. All recyclable material is recycled and batteries are disposed of responsibly. Water use is minimised.
  • Our staff work on a hybrid office/home model to minimise driving time and we conduct meetings electronically whenever possible.
  • We strive to continually improve our environmental performance.
  • We aim to enhance awareness among our employees and stakeholders – educating and
    motivating them to act in an environmentally responsible manner.

Ethical & Economic Responsibility: Equal Access, part of the Equal Access Group, operates in a fair and ethical manner. We provide a safe and healthful workplace.   We aim to achieve the fair treatment of all stakeholders, including leadership, employees and customers. Our goal is not to simply maximise profits but to positively impact the environment, people, and society. We do this by:

  • Providing a safe and healthful workplace.
  • Creating an environmentally aware culture where responsibility is assigned and understood.
  • Ensuring our work practices are viable so that our company remains profitable and thus able to meet our commitments and provide for our growing workforce.
