Icon Professional Development: Health & Safety for Conservators

Health & Safety is key for any conservator - those working in a studio or on the field. That's why our Professional Development team have organised three events to make sure you're up to date on the latest information.

The programme will aim to provide essential and current Health & Safety information for conservators working in a conservation studio and/or on-site. This will link to the following Professional Standards and Judgment & Ethics criteria:

4c: Ensure that your work practices and the area for which you are responsible comply with relevant Health & Safety regulations and guidelines, minimizing risk to yourself and others.

J&Eviii: Observe legal requirements and obligations, including those relating to health and safety, employment and contract law, and international agreements

Programme features:

  • Responsibilities
  • Risk Assessment
  • Hazards (Fire, Manual Handling, Working at Heights, Harmful Substances)
  • How to deal with them

The events will be held in the follow dates and locations:

  • Manchester - Friday 08, February 2019 - Book here
