ADA: Access Board Webinars on Playground Surfaces and Guidelines for Outdoor Developed Areas

Submit A Comment | View Comments

The next webinars in the Access Board's free monthly series will cover accessible play surfaces and new guidelines the Board issued for outdoor developed areas on Federal sites. These webinars were originally planned for earlier this month but were rescheduled due to the government shutdown.

Webinar on Accessible Play Surfaces
November 7, 2:30 – 4:00 (ET)
In this session, Board staff and a representative from the National Center on Accessibility (NCA) will present results from a recently completed study on playground surfaces that assessed how well various types of surface systems, including engineered wood fiber, poured in place rubber, and rubber tiles, perform over time. NCA conducted this research with funding from the Board. (A webinar on accessible prescription drug labels previously scheduled for this date has been postponed.)

Webinar on Accessibility Guidelines for Outdoor Developed Areas
November 8, 2:30 – 4:00 (ET)
In September, the Board issued accessibility guidelines for outdoor areas developed by the federal government, including trails, picnic and camping areas, and beach access routes. In this webinar, Board representatives will review scoping and technical requirements of the new guidelines which will become effective as part of the Architectural Barriers Act Accessibility Standards on November 25.
