I DON'T THINK SO. All I am asking is that I am kept informed of the plans, allowed to take the shortest routes to the toilet, locker room etc. And if I really do have to go round the long way (3 sides of a square), that the doors are changed so that I can see/be seen through the windows (too high at the moment), I can reach the swipe points at the doors, and that power assisted doors are installed. I have been told that because of security and fire regs, the incredibly heavy self closers have to stay, so power assisted doors are the only option for being able to open doors, it seems. SO basically, the adjustments I'm asking for are simply to allow me to move around my workplace in a wheelchair. THe people concerned seem to have no concept that we are dealing with a LEAGAL requirement here, and that there is NO element of choice here."The organisation will obviously help with reasonable adjustments, but we will decide what is reasonable in this case"
I'm not given to swearing, otherwise the board would have to censor me a lot at this point."This is a small centre, and the distances involved are quite small. You should be glad that you don't work in one of the larger centres"
