Upfront with Refilwe Moloto

Accessibility audits


Refilwe speaks to Tarryn Tomlinson

Tomlinson is an accessibility and inclusion auditor for hotels and public spaces. She
visits places and checks building plans as well as the facilities to ensure necessary
details aren’t overlooked. For people with disabilities, a few centimetres make all the
difference. That’s why Tomlinson considers the placement of light switches, the height
of beds, and the inclusion of ramps and handrails. “Something as small as a single step
stands in the way of someone with a disability from gaining access,” she says. By
drawing from her experiences, Tomlinson makes spaces more accessible. “The action
I’m taking is to ensure that people like me are not excluded from living their fullest
lives,” she says.
