Health & safety
Studio artists have contact with many tools and processes that require specific training to handle safely. When properly informed on how to protect themselves and the environment, students can enjoy a lifetime of invested studio practice.
The Faculty of Fine Arts is committed to providing its members with a safe and healthy work environment. Qualified and experienced technical staff ensure that procedures are in place so that students and faculty can successfully realize their projects while minimizing potential hazards.
The Faculty of Fine Arts collaborates closely with Concordia’s Environmental Health & Safety office. Faculty representatives sit on the Central Advisory on Health and Safety Committee, the Hazardous Materials subcommittee, and hold regular meetings of the Fine Arts Health and Safety Committee to address specific Faculty issues.
A safety seminar is held two times in each academic year for Fine Arts faculty, staff and graduate students.
