  1. Protecting Yourself Against Art Hazards: Fine Art Collections What hazardous materials are we potentially exposed to?

  2. Inherent in the creation of the artwork: Paints; Pigments; Dyes; Fibers; Metals. Added post-creation of the artwork: Pesticides; Fungicides; Preservatives; Fumigants. Fine Art Contaminants:

  3. Fine Art Contaminants • Pesticides: • Organochlorine; • Organophosphate • Carbamate; • Organonitrogen.

  4. Fine Art Contaminants: • Volatile Organics: • Thymol; • Paradichlorobenzene; • Ethylene Oxide; • Chloroacetophenone (Tear Gas).

  5. Fine Art Contaminants: • Metals: • Arsenic; • Chromium; • Cadmium; • Mercury; • Lead; • Cobalt.

  6. Fine Art Contaminants: • Organic: • Fungi; • Mold; • Endotoxins; • Bacteria.

  7. Fine Art Contaminants: • Others: • Hydrogen Cyanide; • Hydrogen Selenide. (HCN) (H2Se)

  8. Decorative Arts:Ceramics, Glass, Jewelry, Metal • Pigments: Cd, Pb, Hg, Cr, Uranium; • CN in plated objects; • Hg Vapor.

  9. Fine Arts: Paints, Drawings and Prints, Sculptures • Pesticide Residues; • Hg, Pb, Cd, As, Cobalt from pigments; • Hg Salts as a fungicide; • Silicates /Asbestos.

  10. Furniture • Carcinogenic wood dusts; • PVC degradation; • Biohazards: fungi, bacteria, endotoxins; • Pain t pigments; • Pesticide residues; • Hg vapors.

  11. Photography: • Release of hydrogen selenide gas; • Nitrate film combustion; • Mold spores; • Nitrate deterioration; • Hg Salts/Processing Chemicals.

  12. Textiles: Upholstery, Costumes, Vestments • Hg Vapor; • HCN from UV on silk; • Pesticide Residues; • Cu, aniline pigments and dyes.

  13. Architectural Objects:Structures/Fragments • Pesticide residues; • Pb, Cd, Asbestos containing material; • Cr in patinas, Hg amalgams in mirrors.

  14. Contaminated Glassware, Ceramics, Jewelry and Metal; • Celluloid/ivory, MOP; • Uranium glazes; • Hg, Cr, Cd in pigments; • Hg, Cd in alloys; • CN in gold and silver plated objects • Pb in paint, stained glass; • Radioactive pigments; • Poison Seeds.

  15. Routes of Exposure • Main route of exposure is through direct contact with the artwork; • Exposure hazards prevented or reduced by implementation of engineering controls, work practice modification, and PPE;

  16. Exposure Controls: • Engineering: • Evaluate ventilation System for Area; • Install Local Exhaust; • Designing out the hazard; • Reviewing handling procedures.;

  17. Exposure Controls: • Work Practices: • Minimize Direct Contact; • Personal Hygiene; • Cleaning Work Surfaces; • HEPA Vacuum.

  18. Exposure Controls: • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): • Gloves; • Smocks; • Respirators; • Safety Glasses/Goggles; • Steel-toed Boots.

  19. Exposure Controls: • Administrative: • Training; • Time; • Distance; • Shielding.
