Assistive Devices:
We will ensure that our staff are trained and familiar with various assistive devices that may be used by customers with disabilities while accessing our goods or services.
We will communicate with people with disabilities in ways that take into account their disability.
Service Animals:
We welcome people with disabilities and their service animals.  Service animals are allowed on the parts of our premises that are open to the public.
Support Persons:
A person with a disability who is accompanied by a support person will be allowed to have that person accompany them on our premises.
Fees will not be charged for support persons for admission to Industrial Safety Trainers’ premises.  We will notify customers of this through a notice posted on our premises and on our web-site at time of booking if client advises of disability.
Notice of Temporary Disruption:
In the event of a planned or unexpected disruption to services or facilities for customers with disabilities, Industrial Safety Trainers will notify customers promptly.  This clearly posted notice will include information about the reason for the disruption, its anticipated length of time, and a description of alternative facilities or services, if available.
The notice will be placed at Industrial Safety Trainers Head Office in Barrie and on the web-site.
