Accessibility Standard for Customer Service
Here at Marigold Ford, we are committed to providing the highest standards of customer service for all our clients—including people with disabilities. This is how we ensure that everyone can enjoy our dealership:
We will ensure that our staff members are trained and familiar with various assistive devices that may be used by our customers with disabilities while accessing our goods or services.
We will communicate to people with disabilities in ways that take into account their disability.
We welcome people with disabilities and their service animals. Service animals are allowed on the areas of our premises that are open to the public.
A person with a disability who is accompanied by a support person will be allowed to have that person accompany them on our premises.
Notice of temporary disruption
In the event of a planned or unexpected disruption to services or facilities for customers with disabilities (ie. automatic entrance doors, accessible washrooms), Marigold Ford will notify customers promptly. This clearly posted notice will include information about the reason for disruption, its anticipated length of time, and a description of alternative facilities or services, if available.
The notice will be placed by the affected entrance door(s) of the store.
Training for staff
Marigold Ford will provide training to all employees and others who deal with the public, or to other third parties on their behalf.
This training will be provided to staff in the first three months following their start date.
Training will include:
- An overview of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 and the requirements of customer service standards
- Marigold Ford’s plan related to customer service standards
- How to interact and communicate with people with various types of disabilities
- How to interact with people with disabilities who use an assistive device or require the assistance of a service animal or a support person
- What to do if a person with a disability is having difficulty in accessing Marigold Ford’s goods and services
Staff will also be trained when changes are made to our plan.
