The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990:
Its Impact on Rescue Missions

There are an estimated 43 million Americans with physical and mental disabilities. ADA is causing people to think in new ways and to be more observant about their psychological and physical environments, with removal of architectural and communications barriers. Since its passage in 1990, ADA has resulted in a large number of complaints filed with federal regulators.

Checklist of Disability Access Standards for Office and Administrative Areas

OFFICE OF COMPLIANCE OFFICE OF THE GENERAL COUNSEL

Checklist of Disability Access Standards for Office and Administrative Areas

The following checklist has been developed to help you evaluate whether conditions in your office meet disability access standards. The checklist is based on the ADA Accessibility Guidelines, which apply to Congressional facilities by virtue of section 210 the Congressional Accountability Act. The items included in the checklist were the most common problems identified when House and Senate offices were inspected during the 104th Congress. Section 210 of the CAA requires that inspections be conducted on a periodic basis and at least once each Congress.
At the end of the checklist, there is a list of resources that can help your office with access problems that are identified.
Access may be physical-for example, getting into a Member's office or public meeting room. Or it may be related to communications-such as obtaining copies of printed documents in alternative formats, locating a specific office number, being able to hear committee deliberations during a public session, or calling a staff person on a text telephone (TTY/TDD) for information. Many barriers to public access can be easily eliminated. When it is not possible to remove a physical or communications barrier, this list suggests alternatives.
