A Guide to Safe Practice in Art & Design

4.4   Untidiness

Poor organisation of storage and access systems for equipment and materials and work in progress may also create hazards. Clutter in circulation spaces and untidy, inaccessible and over-full storerooms present obstacles to safe movement and create a potential fire risk.

All these factors need to be taken into account in the planning and conduct of practical sessions. A regular monitoring system can help to ensure that account has been taken of any new hazards.
