Architectural barrier

    An architectural barrier is a building feature that limits access to the work environment by persons with disabilities. For example, stairs and narrow doorways may restrict access for employees who use wheelchairs. When barriers are eliminated, employees with disabilities can more easily obtain and retain jobs and advance employment.    

    As a best practice, employers should identify and remove barriers to ensure that all employees have equal opportunities for successful job performance.    

    Examples of architectural barriers include narrow or non-existent ramps, turning doors at entrances, stairs or steps instead of ramps, inadequate routes throughout the building, restrooms that are not accessible, and drinking fountains too high.
