I think that 24-104(2) might be it. "...permanently connected equipment shall be bonded to ground by copper...conductors..."

Frank,

Although, it's a good suggestion, there is no requirement in the Ontario Electrical Safety Code, or the CSA/Z32-99 "Electrical Safety and Essential Electrical Systems in Health Care Facilities", to have the switch bonded to ground.
