Adapting Greenhouses to Meet ADA Guidelines

Objective of Presentation: The American Disabilities Act (ADA) was updated in September 2010. The OSU Ag Safety staff have used this information to help greenhouse employers abide by these guidelines. It is important that newly constructed greenhouses, if public places of accommodation, are not only accessible and abide by the laws of the ADA, but also provide a comfortable atmosphere for the users of the space.

This webinar will focus on the interpretation of the standards outlined by the act and describe how to implement these standards into greenhouse structures. Merging together the standards with specific application techniques will help owners of greenhouse understand the practical execution of an accessible facility without impeding on the functionality of a greenhouse.
