New Chair Lift Pool Sign Launched For Persons with Disabilities

LaWanda Cook, Ph.D., a Training Specialist at the Employment and Disability Institute for Cornell University’s Industrial and Labor Relations, says, “The 2010 Standards for Accessible Design requires that recreational facilities, both public (Title II) and private (Title III) be made accessible to individuals with disabilities as of March 15, 2012.  For many recreation sites, including hotels, access to pools and spas means providing a pool lift that enables individuals with mobility impairments to be lowered into the water and back out, with little or no assistance.”
