Health and Safety

With all processes and materials, employing artists are responsible for creating a safe working environment (compliant with state law) for the individuals who work with them. Employers can request a consultation with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to ensure that their workspace is compliant with health and safety standards. Employees who are faced with unsafe working conditions can file a report with OSHA. For assistants working in New York, the NY Dept of Labor: Division of Health and Safety Code Rules is a useful resource.
