Is Australia’s “Wheelie Man” the Future of Accessible Signage?

The Accessible Exit Sign Project

For all the thought that is put into public egress systems and signage, it tends to only apply to a single set of our population. The Accessible Exit Sign Project is an independent campaign promoting the need for accessible means of egress in all buildings.

Managed by the Egress Group Pty Ltd, the project aims to raise awareness of the gap that exists in today’s emergency readiness and evacuation programs in accounting for those with sensory or mobility disabilities.

Millions of people around the world are faced every day with the challenge of finding a safe way out of public spaces. Adopting new universal design standards for our exit signage is the first step in creating more inclusive and equitable public spaces.
