WORKS OF ART IN KILN-FORMED GLASS

HEALTH & SAFETY
Like any other profession, there are many health and safety hazards associated with kiln glass. For 29 years I was a Health & Safety professional in industry. Before I retired in 2012 to pursue glass art full time, I was a Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH - www.ABIH.org) and a Certified Safety Professional (CSP - www.BCSP.org).
The information presented here is "good science" and my personal, professional opinion based on my education and experience since 1980 in the health & safety field and over 20 years of working with glass. I hope this information is useful!
