There are things that can be done very easily without much additional cost or effort, such as:
- Including ramps as well as stairs.
- Providing suitable door handles and openings for people with limited manual dexterity, such as levers instead of knobs
- Use the "closed-fist rule" where suitable handles are used that can be operated with a closed fist, allowing access to everyone
- Space considerations as per anthropomorphic parameters
- Ergonomic keyboards and a thorough assessment of work stations and seating
- Standing stations for those who prefer to work in this way
- Different sized spaces for those who prefer to working alone and others who prefer working with people around them
- Multi-sensory safety alarms (auditory; visual), and large-print instructions for emergency and safety equipment
- Textural and different coloured walls and surfaces for visually impaired, and mange changes in elevations along walkways and corridors
- Smart technologies and apps that can help staff adjust their ambient environment as per their own personal preferences, such as lighting, heating and glare.
