The Health & Safety Guide for Film, TV & Theater

Noting that “It would be hard to imagine an industry with more hazards,” Monona Rossol, author of The Health & Safety Guide for Film, TV & Theater, specifies the dangers to workers in theatrical, motion picture, and television, and entertainment productions.

Theatrical paints, theatrical makeup, pigments, dyes, plastics, solvents, woodworking, welding, asbestos, and fog and other specials effects all can cause illness and injury to those working with them. The Health & Safety Guide for Film, TV & Theater offers practical solutions for these dangers.

The book is comprehensive and full of protective guidelines. It covers Occupational Safety and Health Association regulations, occupational illnesses, reproductive hazards, labels, Material Safety Data Sheets, plans and programs, air concerns with vapors, mists, fumes, etc., respirators, ventilation, solvents, paints, inks, pigments, dyes, plastics, adhesives, mold, welding, and carpentry. It also covers location hazards, asbestos, fog, pyro, and other effects, theatrical makeup, and more.

Monona Rossol is the founder and president of Arts, Crafts and Theater Safety (ACTS), a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing health and safety services to the arts, and the author of six books, including The Artist’s Complete Health and Safety Guide .
