Case Study: AccessCheck
Intertek Cristal AccessCheck
What it is: As global leaders in systems and services for brand quality, standards management and related risk management, Intertek Cristal launched AccessCheck – an assessment protocol which provides independent verification of the degree to which hotels, restaurants, and other participants in the travel, tourism, and hospitality industry meet the accessibility needs of those living with disabilities.
Customer benefit: Our team of experts help clients strengthen their brand by ensuring consistency of quality, standards and risk management in everything they do. AccessCheck ensures that clients have a detailed policy in place to address the issues relating to disabled access.
That means making sure all areas of their buildings are accessible, that entry points and reception areas are welcoming for guests with a disability, and that suitable facilities for all guests are available. Through the programme, we also evaluate all aspects of our clients’ building designs, advise on the safe evacuation of guests with specific disabilities, and offer disability awareness training.
