Disability Access and Inclusion Plan
Horizon Power is committed to developing an accessible and inclusive community
Our commitment is to provide information, services and public facilities that are easy for all community members to access, regardless of their ability. This is demonstrated in our Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) for 2019 - 2024 and includes information about: service availability and access to events, buildings and facilities, information, quality of service, complaints, consultation and employment.
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).

DAIP requirements for Horizon Power contractors
Where a contractor is providing a service to the public on Horizon Power’s behalf, the contractor must ensure that the activities are undertaken in an accessible manner consistent with Horizon Power’s DAIP and in accordance with the specifications of the contract and scope of work. The contractor must report (using the reporting template that is prescribed in the contract) to their Contract Manager by 30 June each year.
Further information on how to implement the DAIP, please see the Department of Communities website.
