(Architecture) Conservation in Context: Considerations in Treatment Planning in Relation to the Safety of Conservators and the General Public

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

One of the primary concerns for most conservators is the safety of the treatment on the material receiving treatment. However, one often overlooked consideration in treatment planning is the safety of the treatment for those carrying it out as well as the general public that may be exposed, particularly in the case of in-situ works and built heritage. Treatment dangers come in many different forms, including exposure to hazardous chemicals, extreme temperatures, vapors, particulates, falling hazards, sharp objects, and more. This presentation seeks to explore some of the common hazardous conditions created by conservation treatments, alternatives and their trade offs, and methods to offset the risk. A variety of case study sites in the New York City area will be discussed.
