First of all, let me provide complete questions:
What emergency preparedness standards (if any) are in place in Canadian workplaces for workers who are hearing-impaired?
Is there any Canadian federal or provincial legislation, regulation, or policy that demands employers establish emergency preparedness standards for disabled workers (including, naturally, the hearing-impaired)?
I ask because my wife will be delivering a presentation to an upcoming hearing conservation symposium. From the published abstract of her presentation:
She has found a great deal of material applicable to American workplaces and workers; most notably the US Department of Labor Disability Employment Policy, which is quite useful; and which also makes reference to Executive Order EO13347, “Individuals with Disabilities in Emergency Preparedness.” There is much material also from OSHA in the United States. But neither she nor I seem to be able to find similar Canadian policies, regulations, or legislation.
The symposium itself takes place in Canada and the attendees will be from both the US and Canada. As a result, in addition to the American material, she would like to include Canadian-specific material that addresses the above questions. Can any Dopers help us find it?
