I was wondering if anyone has information regarding safety guidelines for art studios. Recently one of the art studios has relocated close to my office. Yesterday the smell of solvent in the halls was significant. I am sure that had the odor been coming from one of the chemistry teaching labs a response would have been immediate. In this case no one seemed to bother.. I asked the instructor who told me that they had a can for solvent disposal that facilities never seemed to pick up. She was transporting this herself to the county disposal location. Meanwhile there was an air purifier in the room she had been given to take care of the odor (I was wondering if it were explosion proof as it was pulling through solvent vapor) She offered to get another :(. There were jars of solvent open at each easel for cleaning brushes.
Does anyone know where I can find safety code for art studios. What I observed is concerning.
