Occupational Health and the Visual Arts: An Introduction


Παρασκευή, 09.01.2017, 03:00am (GMT+3)

Objective: Occupational hazards in the visual arts often involve hazardous materials, though hazardous equipment and hazardous work conditions can also be found. Occupational health professionals are familiar with most of these hazards and are particularly qualified to contribute clinical and preventive expertise to these issues.Methods: Articles illustrating visual arts health issues were sought and reviewed. Literature sources included medical databases, unindexed art-health publications, and popular press articles.Results: Few medical articles examine health issues in the visuals arts directly, but exposures to pigments, solvents, and other hazards found in the visual arts are well described. The hierarchy of controls is an appropriate model for controlling hazards and promoting safer visual art workplaces.Conclusions: The health and safety of those working in the visual arts can benefit from the occupational health approach. Sources of further information are available.
