Each member of the Department of Art and Music, whether faculty, staff, or student, is responsible for knowing and observing the University Environmental Health and Safety and the Art and Design Environmental Health and Safety Policies. The goal is to develop positive attitudes regarding health and safety among all faculty, staff, and students within the Studio Art program. It is essential that all members take an active part to initiate and enforce preventive measures to control hazards associated with activities under their direction.
To facilitate this goal an EHS manual has been prepared by the faculty to give the student-artist an overview of the hazards connected with the materials he/she is using, and suggestions on how to use them safely. In addition to identifying these materials, guidelines on the use of studio equipment have also been included.
