Stagecraft I Mondays and Wednesdays 9-11:50 Safety Hazards  OSHA (Occupational Health and Safety Administration) o Employer is responsible for keeping you safe o Material safety data sheets (online) tell you a lot of information  Product and company info  Chemical ingredients  Hazard identification  First aid measures  Fire fighting measures  Accidental release measures  Handling and storage  Personal usage  Two types of toxic reaction: o Acute reaction (fast instant result. Example: slip and fall and pass out) o Chronic reaction (reaction to prolonged exposure over time. Example: breathing in spray paint for two weeks and getting cancer)  Book of note: “Artists Beware” by Michael McMann talks about all of the safety issues in places for artists  There are various ways toxins enter the body: o Through the mouth o Through respiratory system (breathing them in) o Through porous membrane (through contact with the skin)  Air born toxins are a big issue in costume shops (more info on page 44 of course book) o Gases (example: photo developing solution, welding) o Vapors (the gas form of a liquid) o Mists (example: stuff in spray cans) o Dusts (comes in a cloud, usually off of things like dry dye powder) o Smoke (happens when you burn things)  Equipment we use for safety o Respirator o Dust mask o Safety glasses o Gloves o Smock, aprons, and lab coats o Ventilation system (two types)  Delution (adds clear air into the room)  Local exhaust (sucks air towards the filters and spits it back into the air cleaner than in was before, but is still the same air)  Toxic things that we run into in the costume shop o Shoe sprays o Barge glue o Dyes and paints o Steamers and irons o Dye vat o Dryer sheets (slip hazard) o Spray starch o Boning, milliner’s needles, beads (all can shatter a needle and send sharp parts flying into your face)  The two jobs that deal with these safety issues and must provide protection from them are the costume crafts person and the painter/dyer  There are six types of dye you can get o Union/household dye (mostly used such as brands like Rit) o Acid dye (protein fibers and nylon) o Direct dye (cellulose fibers) o Basic dye (store bought craft dye) o Disperse dye (synthetic fibers) o Fiber reactive dye (doesn’t need hot water)  Paint is a less harmful but useful tool that can sometimes be used for things dye cannot o Marbling o Aging o Stenciling o Glazing o Distressing  Another book of note: “Fabric painting and dying for the theatre” by Deborah Dryden
