Anyone who handles photographic materials - professionals, students, hobbyists, technicians - should have this book. Health Hazards for Photographers is a clear, ready-reference guide to the safe use of virtually all the chemicals used today in both professional and amateur photography, both black-and-white and color. Opening with practical notes on the nature of photochemicals and the various ways they can be absorbed by the body, the book goes on to detail the chemicals used in black-and-white and color photo-processing, noting the relative toxicity of each and with cautionary notes on handling. An invaluable chapter deals with safety procedures in the darkroom as well as the safety aspects of lab design, ventilation, protective equipment, and much more. (7 X 9 1/4, 224 pages, diagrams)
Of the many thousands of books published on photographic chemicals and processing, very few have dealt with the related safety and health hazards. Similar in approach, content, and quality to Overexposure: Health Hazards in Photography (Allworth Pr., 1991. 2d ed.), this work deals exclusively with the potential dangers of working with photographic chemicals, particularly in laboratories and the darkroom. Like Overexposure , this work is logically organized and indexed for easy reference, and both present information clearly, starting with basic precautions such as proper darkroom design and ventilation, handling and storage of chemicals, and protective equipment. Given the dearth of materials on this subject and considering that some photographers themselves lack appreciation of the grave health hazards, librarians can do a great service by acquiring both of these reasonably priced titles. At least one should be in every public, academic, and special library collection.
