Accessibility

Horizon Power is committed to developing an accessible and inclusive community.

It is a requirement of the Disability Services Act 1993 that all public authorities develop and implement a Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) outlining how the organisation ensures equal access to its facilities and services for people with disability. Other legislation underpinning access and inclusion includes the WA Equal Opportunity Act 1984 and the Commonwealth Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (DDA).

Horizon Power is committed to developing an accessible and inclusive community by providing information, services and public facilities that are easy for all community members to access. This commitment is demonstrated in our Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP), developed in consultation with our employees, customers, the Department of Disability Services, our industry partners and the broader community.

Our DAIP addresses barriers to access in areas such as:

  • Service availability and quality
  • Facilities
  • Information
  • Complaints
  • Consultation
  • Employment
