In December, the PSAI sent letters to each company to identify who should receive the ballot access information. If you did not receive that letter, please contact info@psai.org to confirm the email address of your voter. Today, each previously confirmed voter will receive an email containing specific access information for the electronic ballot. Continued on page 2 The ADA Turns 30: Requirements for Portable Sanitation By Karleen Kos, PSAI Executive Director 2020 marks the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Since its enactment in 1990, this landmark legislation has brought sweeping modifications to industries as varied as portable sanitation, transportation, construction, event management, and education. Together, the changes effectively freed people with special needs to become fully engaged members of our communities. 1 Since the ADA and its application to portable sanitation is one of the most asked-about topics at the PSAI, this is a timely opportunity to review its requirements for our industry. 1 This article covers ADA requirements. Most nations have laws similar to the ADA, and United Nations members typically sign the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). For a list of international laws related to meeting the needs of the disabled, please visit Disability Rights Education and Defense Fund.
