Toxic materials, toxic vapors and gasses and dangerous machinery are among the potential health hazards encountered by the studio artist. Students are urged to (1) familiarize themselves with possible health hazards in the areas in which they are working and (2) utilize all available techniques and equipment to minimize hazards. In some areas the use of respirators or safety goggles is required by CCS.
Pregnant women, persons with respiratory problems and persons placed under physical restrictions by their physicians must make their condition known to instructors as soon as courses begin or at the onset of their condition. If for some reason, you are having difficulties with an instructor regarding your health status, discuss the issue with your Department Chair or the Dean of Undergraduate Studies.
