What are Access Consultants?

Proactive Compliance offers a range of access consulting services designed to ensure that places such as buildings, public spaces and workplaces comply with Australian Disability Access Regulations.

These regulations ensure that our community is safe and accessible for people with a disability. In Australia, approximately 20% of people are living with ability limitations.

Access Consultants are trained specialists with qualifications in assisting people with a disability to move through access areas confidently and safely. Our Access Consultants are registered Associate Members of the Association of Consultants in Access Australia.
