Hello Clayarters,

I noticed a lot of concern with safety and health issues in the
listserve. I would like to recommend the newsletter,'Art Hazards News'
produced by the Center for Safety in the Arts, out of New York City.
It is published four times a year and covers the
hazards,precautions,goverment regulations,lawsuits,and other topics
related to hazards in the visual and performing arts,museums,and school
arts programs. The cost is $24.00 for a 1 year subscription. I urge all
to check out the homepage, it's full of valuable information.

limit your exposures or at least know what to expect if you are over
