This workshop will be of interest to archivists whose environment
includes chemical products from glues to fumigants; molds or dust
from paper and leather; poor ventilation; fungus, bacteria,
carcinogens and toxic substances; dyes, packaging chemicals and
other irritants. The workshop will cover all of the information
required by OSHA's hazard communication (HAZCOM) regulation as it
applies to archival work. The participants will gain insight into
basic concepts of archival health and safety and develop
transferrable strategies to prevent hazards in the workplace. At the
end of the workshop, the participants will be able to pass a
standard HAZCOM proficiency test, to recognize workplace hazards and
to implement strategies that will make the workplace safe. The
instructor for the workshop is Monona Rossol, president and founder
of Arts, Crafts and Theater Safety, Inc.
