Visually impaired visitors and community members

Consideration of local needs, such as visually-impaired visitors and members of the community is very important.

Some examples of how sites have considered their impact on visually-impaired visitors include:

  • Provision was made, including notices being provided in Braille and tactile surfaces;
  • The site newsletter was produced in Braille, to let prospective attendees know about changes they were likely to encounter when crossing the area of town affected by the works;
  • The site manager’s identification had a braille section to identify himself to visually impaired residents;
  • The site supported RNIB training in the town; with walks through temporary works areas;
  • Vulnerable community members and visitors were escorted around the site and surrounding perimeter.

By proactive identification, problems can often be pre-empted. This avoids a disproportionate amount of management time and effort being used to deal with complaints. Induction and toolbox talks should also cover customer and community care issues.
