Studio Art Department Safety Procedures
The goal of the Art Department is to create a safe working environment through the development of:
- Safety instruction
- General and area specific written procedures
- Training in the use of materials and equipment
Dissemination of safety information
The overall responsibility for safety and health rests with the supervisor. Faculty members are responsible for safety and housekeeping in their teaching areas. Where two faculty members share a facility, the supervisor shall designate areas of responsibility. Each faculty member is responsible for developing, posting, and enforcing any special safety precautions particular to his/her area arising from the nature of instruction. Each student is responsible for knowing all school and area-specific safety policies. Assistance in assuring compliance will be provided by Safety Supervisor, Eric Schmidt.
