NRA Offers Up ADA Compliance Kit Download

The National Restaurant Association has released "Americans with Disabilities Act: Toolkit for Restaurant Operators," an 80-page toolkit that helps restaurateurs comply with updated federal accessibility guidelines.

The requirements, officially known as the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design, are the first major changes to the federal design standards since the ADA was signed in 1991. The new standards set ground rules for what makes a restaurant accessible, covering everything from restrooms to signage, elevators, ramps and parking spaces.

The ’10 standards apply to new construction and alterations starting on or after last March 15. The toolkit includes a general overview of Title III and a checklist that operators can use to evaluate their dining areas, self-service counters and children's play areas.

The book also offers a chapter on what restaurateurs should do if they are sued under the ADA. The toolkit is available at Restaurant.org/ADA as a complimentary download for NRA members; non-members pay $49.95.
