Ensign, Arselia, Ed.
PAM Repeater, n70 Jul 1991
This checklist is intended to help churches evaluate the accessibility of their facilities to those with physical disabilities. Categories covered are: basic accessibility, parking lots, walks, ramps, entrances/exits, doors and doorways, stairs and steps, floors, worship space, rest rooms, controls, water fountains, identification, warning signals, hazards, public telephones, and elevators. An accessibility process is detailed for the three major steps of: (1) audit (e.g., identify the needs); (2) design (e.g., develop a scope of the work and prioritize needs); and (3) implementation (e.g., finalize financial planning, implement, and dedicate the resulting church and program.
