Accessing my world – ISO standards to remove barriers

ISO standards to remove barriers

Few things can be more frustrating than thoughtlessness and bad design that excludes people. But sometimes the best way to cater for people’s differing needs is not clear. That’s where ISO Standards come in. Covering everything from placement of signage for blind people to safer pedestrian crossings for the deaf or hard of hearing, ISO Standards are all about inclusion.

Beginning with a process that brings disabled people together with experts in the accessibility, ISO publish Standards that make life easier for those who are challenged.

Working together for access for all

Access everywhere. That’s the goal. It means looking with fresh eyes at the construction of buildings, re-imagining mobility, and developing assistive technology that helps people reach their potential. In fact there are so many things to take into account that ISO even has guidelines for standards developers to address accessibility when writing standards.
