Which Disabled Signs Should You Display?
The disabled sign you should display will depend on the type of business or organization you have and the specific needs of your disabled customers or employees. However, some common disabled signs include:
- Disabled parking signs: These signs indicate that the parking space is reserved for people with disabilities. They are typically blue and have a white wheelchair symbol.
- Disabled toilet signs: These signs indicate that the toilet room is accessible for people with disabilities. They typically have a white wheelchair symbol on a blue background.
- Disabled access ramps: These signs indicate the location of ramps that are designed for people with disabilities. They typically have a white wheelchair symbol on a blue background.
- Hearing assistance signs: These signs indicate that there are hearing assistance devices available, such as assistive listening devices or CART (Communication Access Realtime Translation) services.
You should also make sure that your signage is easy to read and understand for people with all types of disabilities, including visual impairments, hearing impairments, and cognitive disabilities.
Here are some additional tips for displaying disabled signs:
- Place the signs in a prominent location where they are likely to be seen by people with disabilities.
- Use clear and concise language that is easy to understand.
- Use large, easy-to-read fonts.
- Avoid using jargon or technical terms.
- Use symbols that are universally recognized.
By displaying appropriate disabled signs, you can help to create a more accessible environment for people with disabilities.
