Every aspect of inclusion is covered by us. From broadening your management’s practical and legal awareness of the subject to training your employees with disabilities so that they can reach their full potential, be highly valued and productive.
The first interactions any PwD will have with your company is usually by the information you put on your website, social media and possibly mobile apps. Your web page should be accessible to the visually impaired. Pictures need alternative text describing what is in the picture.
All of these interactions have the potential to be enhanced to make the functionality and experience for your employees and PwD to become more effective and inclusive. Also, they might meet your employees or find out about your company through your CSR activities.

What is Infrastructure Accessibility
Every building has entrances and facilities that may contain “barriers” for PwD.
- Steps are a barrier to a wheelchair user.
- Steps without handrails are a hazard to those with visual impairment.
- Handrails are an important aid and a safety feature especially for those who have walking/climbing difficulties.
- PwD who use walking aids or wheelchairs will have difficulties in most toilet facilities unless these are properly accessible as per the standards.
In some countries, you will find that nearly every building has all the mitigations in place as standard. India’s national building regulations having all the necessary clauses in then standards since 2002 however most buildings do not have these features.
We can provide a report complete with practical solutions based upon a comprehensive survey. Our personnel will record all the relevant measurements and observations regarding potential issues. We know the standards well and we can provide systematic and comprehensive solutions to your accessibility requirements.

PAICE – Progressive Accessibility & Inclusion Certificates for Establishments
A living document reflecting your organisation’s progressive steps towards accessibility and inclusion achievements.
Our establishment accessibility certificate is in the form of a “living” document that follows your establishment’s progress towards greater accessibility and inclusion.
This is provided both as a physical plaque at your physical location and as a virtual plaque that can be accessed via a link on your website or in your social media account.
It will be updated on your request whenever your establishment has made another step in the path towards accessibility and inclusion. This is supported by a digitally signed electronic version for use on websites and for printing (using QR codes for linking).
We can do a survey of your business from your web pages, and signage to every aspect of physical accessibility.
Our certificate clearly represents your organisation’s real achievements. More importantly, the program of assessment gives you a systematic and pragmatic schedule of mitigations to achieve increasing levels of accessibility and inclusion for Persons With Disabilities.
