With nearly one in four Iowa adults having some sort of a disability, it is important that businesses and worksites ensure that they are doing everything they can to provide equitable access to their facilities, products, and services. Interested organizations and businesses can get started by completing the Community Health Inclusion Index (CHII) Organizational Assessment and then completing a CHII On-Site Assessment. Both of these tools will not only help you identify what you are doing well, but they will also identify barriers that may make access difficult for people with disabilities. Then by addressing and removing those barriers you will ensure equitable access for all individuals you serve. Page two provides common policy, system, and environmental (PSE) changes that can be implemented with some being low-cost, simple solutions.
