Vertical access between different levels along accessible routes is a crucial aspect of accessibility. This session will address the requirements and clarify common sources of confusion when providing vertical access. Questions such as: “Does my building require an elevator?”, “When can I use a lift?”, or “When can I use a Limited Use Limited Application (LULA) elevator?” will be answered. Additionally, the presenters will review the scoping and technical requirements for elevators, platform lifts, and stairs.

This session includes real-time captioning and video remote sign language interpreting.

Individuals may submit questions in advance during the registration process. Questions will also be taken during the live session.
