This nineteen chapter book covers health and safety concerns, precautions, and remedies for all areas of museum work. This up-to-date reference is the ideal go-to book for conservators, exhibit producers, collection managers, curators, and administrators in all disciplines. The book is broken up into three separate parts: Part One deals with the overarching issues of safety program planning and implementation. Part Two deals with specific hazards that may be encountered in work situations related to cultural property and the nature of the health issues posed by these hazards; and Part Three deals with the functions of museum staff (collections management, conservation, educational programming, exhibit production, research, and field work) and the mechanisms by which museum workers encounter hazards in each issue is identified.
