Essential for jewelers, professionals, schools, small studios, factories, students. This book reviews issues of studio safety and discusses strategies for recognizing risks in the jewelry workshop, and for reducing hazards by using substitution of materials or processes.
The premise is that any reduction in risk improves safety conditions for the goldsmith and artist. It is written in a easily readable, warm style with plenty of examples and safety anecdotes backed by extensive citations and references.
A workshop tour gives you a new approach to learning about safety issues and procedures, with safety and health concerns listed by the jewelry procedures and tools used, and a good index, all design ed to help you find the information you want rapidly and easily.
