Accessibility is the democratic right to move about freely and act in society for all people, even for people with disabilities. According to Greek legislation ought private and government supported public buildings to be accessible for people with disabilities. The purpose of this study is to examine the wheelchair accessibility of public buildings in a defined geographical area in Greece. The study group consisted of 14 public buildings. A checklist was constructed on the basis of the Greek checklist which can be used to examine the accessibility of public buildings containing the following assessment areas: walkway that leads to the entrance, entrance, entrance hall and other public spaces in the building, corridors, interior doors, ramps, elevators and toilets/hygiene rooms. The results revealed accessibility problems, such problems were mainly observed in the areas ramps, elevators and toilets/hygiene rooms. None of the public buildings was 100% accessible. Consulting occupational therapists when planning and designing the physical environment could diminish accessibility problems and promote health and well-being for all people.
