Accessibility Experts Ltd. has been working hard to design and create
courses to help each of you to implement the Integrated Accessibility
Standards (IAS) which was legislated in July 2011. The Integrated
Accessibility Standards is comprised of three (3) standards; Employment
Standard, Information and Communications Standard and Transportation
Standard. There are various dates you must comply within the three (3)
Standards.

 

Much the same as the Accessible Customer Service Standard, we have created
the following workshops;

 

.         Management Overview, 

.         Train the Trainer, 

.         Implementing Session so that you can create your policies and
procedures, and 

.         90 minute staff training that can be used for all staff to be in
compliance with the Integrated Accessibility Standards.  

 

We have also created a specific workshops for Employment Standard and the
Information and Communications Standard. 

.         Implementing the Employment Standard for Human Resources (HR)
staff 

.         Implement the Information and Communications Standard for IT &
Marketing Staff 

.         Accessible Formats for all staff who create documents

Municipalities - Meeting January Deliverables - Taxi Cabs

 

One of your deliverables under the Integrated Accessibility Standards, is to
ensure that owners and operators of taxicabs place vehicle registration
information on the rear bumper of the taxicabs by January 1st, 2012.  .  

 

Accessibility Experts Ltd. has developed a rear bumper sticker that is a
peel off sticker that can be adhered to the bumper.  It is extremely
durable, laminated cast vinyl. If you wish to have it in a reflective
material, we can accommodate. We have sourced out another printing company
that it is able to produce the bumper sticker at a much lower price.  The
cost for the sticker is $25.00, plus HST and shipping and handling. If you
would like to have the bumper stickers in the reflective vinyl, there is no
extra cost. We can run multiple registrations, identification information
and include taxi cab name.    If you are interested please contact
judy@accessibilityexperts.ca 

 

Letters from Directorate

 

If any of you have written letters to the Accessibility Directorate about
the Integrated Accessibility Standards and received a reply we would love to
hear from you.  These letters give clarification on Standards and help us in
providing effective and accurate training.  

 

Impact on Accessible Customer Service Training

 

We recently received an email from one of our clients who participated in
one of Accessible Customer Service Workshops. The email is an indication of
how we are taking steps towards making Ontario accessible and the goal of
the AODA (Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act) is truly
assisting people with disabilities. The more we educate, the closer we get
to making Ontario accessible. Thank you to Leah Dunbar for sharing her
story. To read Leah's story visit our news section on our website
