Energy Resources of Australia Ltd (ERA) is a member of the Rio Tinto Group, and recognises the importance of providing a website that is accessible to everyone and easy to use. On this page we outline our ongoing commitment to making our online services accessible and explain the accessibility features of this site.
Commitment to accessibility
We acknowledge the importance of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) of 1995, the World Wide Web Consortiums' (W3C) Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) and Section 508 of the U.S.A Federal Electronic Rehabilitation Act all of which state that provision must be made to ensure that all products and services are accessible to disabled users.
At Rio Tinto, we are committed to making our online services inclusive because accessibility has a positive effect on general usability and we believe that websites that are accessible and usable benefit everyone.
We will continue to review, test and modify our website for usability and accessibility issues and aim to ensure maintaining compliance is part of our ongoing commitment.
We aim to achieve and maintain optimum accessibility by regularly carrying out a combination of both expert reviews and 'real' user testing. We believe that automated test tools alone are unable to assess accessibility effectively.
Our pages conform to a minimum Level 1 (A) compliance as specified by the Web Content Accessibility guidelines. Where possible the majority of Level 2 (AA) and 3 (AAA) requirements are also met.
