Disabled toileting solutions provider Closomat has published a white paper:Provision of Accessible Toilets in the Tourism Industry.

The white paper can be found from the downloads section of Closomat’s website. The white paper provides a simplified reference to achieve compliance for venues where people are spending a few hours or a day.

It clarified what is needed under the latest Building Regulations (Approved Document M 2013), plus the Equality Act and BS8300:2009, to enable visitors with a visible or invisible disability to access appropriate toilets.

Robin Tuffley, Closomat marketing manager, says, “A recent survey showed that 85% of families with a disabled member had left a venue early because of poor or unsuitable toilet facilities; 99% of its respondents said they would be more likely to visit a venue if they knew it had suitable toilet facilities- that includes wheelchair accessible toilets, accessible facilities with a changing bench and hoist, or a ‘full specification’ Changing Places assisted accessible toilet.”

“We have the experience and expertise to collate our knowledge into one document that gives everyone involved in the building specification process an easy to use, concise and informative reference point,” he added.
