“According to the UN Convention on the rights of persons with disabilities our aim is to achieve an inclusive society without barriers.” Doris BECKER-MACHREICH
ÖZIV ACCESS offers consultancy services and solutions in the field of accessibility which are sensitive to the needs of persons with disabilities and their families. Specially trained consultants advise in the fields of built environment, design, communications and social accessibility. Tailor-made training is also offered in order to increase sensitivity and advise a specific group of individuals, e.g. employees, in dealing with persons with disabilities. ÖZIV ACCESS has worked with various Austrian companies and organisations, among others: Austrian Post AG, the Federal Ministry of Finance, ORF, Nespresso, Merkur/Rewe, baumax, ÖBB/MUNGOS and AUA.
Despite the Disability Discrimination Act, persons with disabilities in Austria still cannot participate equally in all areas of life (school, housing, culture, work etc.). The lack of accessibility and awareness in various areas prevents their full inclusion.
