Case 62 - Wheelchair users refused entry to nightclub on grounds of health and safety

Issue

Wheelchairs are being refused entry into a nightclub on the grounds of health and safety.

Panel decision

There is no Health and Safety law which bans wheelchair users from nightclubs. The owner should make reasonable adjustments to enable a disabled person to use the premises, or explain why this cannot be done.
