Mike Elkerton MBE
Access & Evacu8 Ltd
For the last twenty three years he has independently conducted audits of Buildings, Schools, Hospitals, Football Clubs, Museums, Libraries, Boats and Tourist Attractions all over the UK including Northern Ireland. The National Stadium at Wembley and the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff are two of the most iconic buildings he has audited and offered staff training.
He is the Disability Advisor for IKEA (UK) Ltd, Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Gulliver’s Theme Parks and the INTU Trafford Centre in Manchester. After 23 years of giving advice and guidance for greater access to the built environment he and his company are now concentrating on a new system to help disabled people with wayfinding and more importantly evacuation in the case of an emergency.
Mike is also the Chair and CPD Officer for the NW Regional Access Association.
‘The Right to Life and the Evacuation of Disabled People’
My company has designed a new App using technology to give disabled people greater access and inclusion into their community. The seminar will show how the free to download App works and the benefits to disabled people and service providers.
