Industrial Commission Accessibility Policy

Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

The Ohio Industrial Commission does not discriminate on the basis of disability in its programs, services, activities and employment practices. If you need auxiliary aids and services for effective communication (such as a sign language interpreter, an assistive listening device or print material in digital format) or reasonable modification to programs, services or activities, contact the ADA coordinator as soon as possible, preferably 17 days before the activity or event. A grievance procedure is available to resolve complaints. Upon request, this notice is available in alternative formats such as large print or Braille.

Compliance

The Ohio Industrial Commission is taking steps to ensure that this www.ic.ohio.gov is accessible to people with disabilities who use assistive technology to access the internet.

The Ohio Industrial Commission is complying with State of Ohio IT Policy - Website Accessibility, IT-09, issued by the Ohio Office of Information Technology. This policy establishes minimum website accessibility requirements for information and services provided on state-controlled websites. The requirements include compliance with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, which are standards created by the World Wide Web Consortium's Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI). WCAG 2.0 compliance levels are described as single-A (meets all priority 1 checkpoints), double-A (meets all priority 1 and 2 checkpoints), and triple-A (meets all priority 1, 2, and 3 checkpoints). This website currently conforms to the double-A compliance level and many of the priority 3 checkpoints. In addition, web pages already in place are under review and will be brought to compliance as they are identified.

The website administrator continually assesses the website to improve usability and accessibility.
