The ADA act does not allow people to have access to every single job
regardless of their handicap.  So, if something requires the ability to
see certain colors, then that's a requirement.

You might consider the ADA act before you go too far down this road. I'm no
expert, but it may apply...

Hello,

Do any of you do any color vision screening in your interview process?
How
do those of you with color vision impairments compensate? I'd never
considered this until I was in one of our facilities with my son (who has
limited color vision) and we had a discussion about the LEDs. He could
only
determine on/off - not amber/red/green on the equipment we had. I'm
wondering if we need a color vision requirement (or test) as part of our
hiring requirements.
