(Attach Needed Survey Forms to this Summary Sheet.)
Rooms and spaces which are not specifically exempt or which are not used solely as work areas must be fully accessible.
Note: Accessibility is not required to: (i) observation galleries used primarily for security purposes; or (ii) non-occupiable spaces accessed only by ladders, catwalks, crawl spaces, very narrow passageways, or freight (non-passenger) elevators and frequented only by service personnel for repair purposes (e.g., elevator pits, elevator penthouses, piping or equipment catwalks).
Areas that are used only by employees as work areas must be designed and constructed so that individuals with disabilities can approach, enter, and exit the areas. The guidelines do not require that areas used only by employees as work areas be constructed to permit maneuvering within the work area or be constructed or equipped (i.e., with racks or shelves) to be accessible.
Survey each room and space with Form 14: Rooms and Spaces. You may also need Form 11: Doors and Gates; Form 19: Signage; and Form 20: Alarms. If ramps, stairs*, or lifts* are part of a room or space, use Form 7: Ramps; Form 8: Stairs*; and Form 9: Platform Lifts*. If drinking fountains or public telephones are located in a room or space, use Form 5: Drinking Fountains and Form 6: Telephones.
Note: Use of stairs and platform lifts to provide accessibility is limited in new construction. (See Minimum Requirements Summary Sheet D: Building Accessible Route.)
Survey the door to each area with Form 11: Doors and Gates and survey the accessible route with Form 12: Building Lobbies and Corridors.
An assembly area is defined as a room or space accommodating a group of individuals for recreational, educational, political, social, or amusement purposes, or for the consumption of food and drink.
