ANSA Barbados partners with the Barbados Council for the Disabled

ANSA McAL (Barbados) Limited is embarking on a Fully Accessible Barbados (FAB) programme in association with the Barbados Council for the Disabled. Group HR Manager, Roglyn Hinds, made the announcement recently after a joint meeting with the Council. She said:   “In line with our goal of ensuring accessibility and inclusivity for all our stakeholders, we are delighted to partner with the Barbados Council for the Disabled.”

“FAB is a programme of evaluation ad recognition that seeks to accredit properties for their level of accessibility to a variety of persons with and without disabilities, not only the structure but also in terms of the general treatment of patrons with challenges. The FAB standards and criteria are based on international accessibility requirements.”

Nicholas Mouttet, Group CEO also noted: “All of our physical locations will be assessed in line with international standards of access and accommodations made in line with recommendations. ANSA McAL (Barbados) Ltd. is the first commercial entity within the private sector to embark on the FAB accreditation programme.”

Roseanna Tudor, Operations Manager – Barbados Council for the Disabled noted: “By embarking on this journey, ANSA McAL through its subsidiary companies is making a contribution to our wider goal of focusing on universal design to create an inclusive society.”

“This also raises the standard of service delivery by incorporating a ‘universal design.’ This is an approach to the development and improvement of products, services and the environment so that they are usable by as many people as possible regardless of age, ability or situation.”
