USELECTIT IS ADA COMPLIANT
USelectIt is proud to be ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliant. Every machine we produce is fully up to standard with the guidelines set forth by the Department of Justice.
WHAT DOES ADA COMPLIANCE MEAN?
The ADA Standards for Accessible Design were established in September 2010. These standards ensure that all electronics and information technology machinery must be accessible to people with disabilities. Practically speaking, this means that all of our vending machines are easily accessible to people with mobile disabilities, such as those who are wheelchair bound.
IS IT STRICTLY ENFORCED?
There are no “watchdogs” from the DOJ to ensure these standards are being enforced in our industry, USelectIt, as a socially responsible and sustainable company, choose to be compliant as a matter of moral imperative and customer service.
WHAT ARE THE RISKS FOR NON-COMPLIANCE?
For industries such as hospitals, hotels, and schools, non-ADA compliance can lead to government interference and lawsuits. For private service industries, the risks of non-compliance reflect in customer satisfaction and social sustainability. But not catering our products to those who fall within ADA standards, we limit our product reach and accessibility to a wide, diverse customer base.
WHO ISN’T ADA COMPLIANT?
Alternative vending companies, who often boast impossibly low prices and “get-rich-quick” vending partnerships, are rarely ADA-compliant. Ask your vending provider about their status. Or visit the DOJ’s A.D.A. compliance site to learn more.
USelectIt is proud to be ADA Compliant and looks forward to serving the disabled community with dignity, accessibility, and quality for years to come. Visit USelectIt.com to learn more about our vending services.
