The existing language is correct. To express it in programatic terms:

if ( violates_flash() || violates_red() ) { fail() }

You propose:

if ( violates_flash() && violates_red() ) { fail() }

which would only fail if both the General Flash threshold and the Red  
Flash were exceeded.

If the title of the guideline is unclear, then the full text of it  
certainly is not:

			use a tool that to determine that neither the General Flash nor Red  
			threshold were exceeded

Of course.

use these

So if looking at a page triggers a seizure, then the user can turn off  
the flashing? I think it would be a *little* bit late by then.
