Accessible offices are all the range. But is your office furniture in NJ sending the same messages? As more and more people return to their offices after the COVID-19 pandemic, there is renewed interest in making your office accessible to all. Keep reading to find out how your office furniture communicates your commitment to accessibility.
Sit, Stand, Roll
If your office is ADA-compliant, you know that you need tables and desks to be of a proper height to accommodate wheelchairs, and your doorways and hallways must also meet compliance standards. But are you just doing the minimum? For example, does your waiting room have adequate space to park a wheelchair, or is it always in the way of the door? Can all your employees reach all the paper files? Could a guest speaker comfortably use your conference room? If the answer to any of these questions is “no,” you can address some of these issues with new office furniture. A new table, chairs, or storage solution can make your office more accessible.
Aside from wheelchair users, your employees may have other mobility concerns. Are your employees distracted by back or leg pain? Would different chairs, a standing desk, or other equipment help? Your employees and guests are entitled to many accommodations, so work closely with them while choosing your office furniture. In NJ, you may want to browse a furniture store for the best products.
Assistive and More
Following this individualized trend, many employees benefit from assistive devices, tools, or technologies. Is your office capable of handling these? You may not think about it immediately, but providing a larger desk that can accommodate technological adaptations, an office refrigerator to keep medications cool, or other tools can be the difference between an inaccessible workplace and a perfect one.
