Disability Signs

Employers have a responsibility to display essential safety signage to help assist staff and visitors, including those with disabilities and restricted mobility. Disability signs give important building information, such as disabled access, assistance buttons and hard-of-hearing facilities. 

In addition to complying with the current safety regulations, the Disability Equality Duty (DED) advises that public bodies (such as schools or NHS premises) actively promote disability equality. With this in mind, disability signs must be provided where necessary and easy to spot. 

All our signs are manufactured in the UK and made of premium, durable PVC which is suitable for inside and outside use. They are also quick and simple to install with sticky pads, 'no-nails' adhesive or double-sided tape.

  • Are disability signs a legal requirement?

    Disability signs are required, where relevant, in all workplaces to ensure that employees are treated equally. The Department of Work and Pensions state "small to medium-sized businesses have to make reasonable adjustments so they do not discriminate against disabled customers or employees.".

    Employers, therefore, have a duty to ensure their premises can accommodate staff and visitors with disabilities and impairments. Which means being willing to make adjustments to the building to accommodate the necessary requests. This can include anything from installing automatic opening doors to fitting disabled access signs.

    The best way to ensure you have all the correct disability signs and symbols on your premises is to liaise with any disabled employees first hand to see how you can accommodate their working environment. Alternatively, you could seek advice from a local disability group.

  • Where should disability signs be placed?

    You should follow the same guidance with disability signs as with all safety signage and place them as close to the equipment or area as possible. When fitting wheelchair-related signage, it's important to be mindful of the height and ensure it's at eye level for those using wheelchairs.

  • What colour are disability signs?

    A blue background with a white wheelchair symbol is recognised as the International Symbol of Access (ISA). Although the symbol displays a wheelchair, it's also inclusive of invisible disabilities. For example, a disabled toilet can be used by anyone with a disability, whether physical or not.

    All of our disability signs use symbols that comply with ISO 7010 legislation and the Equality Act 2010 (formerly the Disability Discrimination Act 2005). They are also coloured in the same universally acknowledged blue shade.
