The Learning Connexion encourages you to maintain best practice health and safety working processes and conditions while engaged in your creative activities.
It's your responsibility to be safe and keep others safe.
Some activities and materials are hazardous and toxic. This doesn't mean you can't use them, it just means you need to think about the risks and take steps to minimise those risks.
When working with hazardous material, tools or conditions there are a set of steps you can work through to identify and minimise risk and stay safe.
These steps can be applied to any potential hazard and will allow you to work out safe practices for the particular situation you are working in.
Check out our Student Support page to see your health and safety representatives.
