CONTENT of the Workshop
Nobody Left Behind!
Full and effective Accessibility of the physical environment is a fundamental right for everybody in society.
In buildings, this dynamic concept encompasses the complete cycle of independent access, dignified use by People with Activity Limitations (2001 WHO ICF), including normal egress and fire evacuation to a remote place of safety during emergencies.
International Standard ISO 21542: ‘Building Construction – Accessibility & Usability of the Built Environment’, now in the final stages of a major revision, specifies the essential design infrastructure and user/occupant practices which facilitate Fire Safety for All.

Number of participants: 67
