Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

We are committed to helping design professionals create safe, accessible, and compliant public spaces.

Master Luminance Contrast and Claim Formal CPD Points

In partnership with Archify, we have created an easy-to-follow webinar on Luminance Contrast to help you gain CPD points.

Both Tactile Indicators and Stair Nosings serve as indispensable safety features. Their inclusion and application are integral components of Australian Standards, ensuring that our built enviornments are accessible and safe for all individuals, especially those with vision impairments.

Supporting your professional development goals, the webinar is your quick guide to LRV and luminance contrast compliance in built environments.

Learning Outcomes

The 45-minute webinar focuses on the following learning outcomes:

  1. Understand the critical importance of Australian Standards compliance regarding luminance contrast for Tactile Ground Surface Indicators (TGSI’s) and Stair Nosings.
  2. Gain insights into the fundamental role of Tactile Indicators in creating inclusive environments for the vision impaired, including the types and applications of Warning and Directional Tactile Indicators.
  3. Understand the significance of Stair Nosings in enhancing stair and floor safety, reducing the risk of slips and falls, and promoting confidence in navigation for individuals with vision impairments.
  4. Explore the purpose and interpretation of Australian Standards related to luminance contrast, specifically for Tactile Indicators and Stair Nosings.
  5. Understand the difference between luminance contrast and colour contrast.
  6. Learn about the Bowman-Sapolinski equation and how it is used to calculate luminance contrast, facilitating understanding and compliance with Australian Standards.
  7. Understand what Light Reflectance Value (LRV) is, how it is measured and how it is obtained.
  8. Learn the calculation process for luminance contrast and familiarise oneself with the minimum requirements outlined by Australian Standards.
  9. Discover a free online tool for evaluating luminance contrast compliance against Australian Standards, providing instant results and reporting with a clear pass or fail outcome.
  10. Ultimately feel more confident that in the built environment, your product specifications meet luminance contrast requirements in Australian Standards.
