The Risk Management and Safety Department serves both the Studio Art program and the Theatre Department faculty, staff and students by providing technical support and training, studio consultations and periodic audits of health and safety practices, including regulatory compliance.
Activities in both the art and theatre department are regulated under the UVM Laboratory Safety Policy.
Materials and procedures in art and theatre departments should be individually assessed and clearly documented as they might be in a typical laboratory setting.
Please contact UVM Risk Management and Safety to perform a hazard assessment of a current practices or before you begin a new procedure. Never do repairs or make changes to anything that may affect a building system (e.g. electrical, mechanical, ventilation) without contact UVM Physical Plant personnel first.
