Art Safety Programs

The nature of an artist is to be creative utilizing a select medium and/or equipment. It is their right to be informed about the associated hazards and their environmental responsibility to dispose of the waste they generate properly.

 

REHS, in consultation with Rutgers University Art Programs has developed a general safety guide to assist faculty, staff, and students by providing basic information for working safely with chemicals and operations in the visual arts.
