Editorial Reviews

ITASE Bulletin
"The Health and Safety Guide For Film, TV & Theatre by Monona Rossol is an updated edition of her earlier publication Stage Fright and as far as we know is the only book of its kind."
(International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees)
The Bookwatch
"A fine assessment of the health problems and issues unique to the entertainment industries. From te hazards of theatrical paints and solvents to working wth existing health and safety laws both on the job and in the classroom, Health and Safety Guide for Film, TV & Theater is packed with practical advice."
The Journal of Props Professionals
"I thought I was fairly knowledgeable about health and safety matters, but I've learned an enormous amount from reading The Health and Safety Guide For Film, TV & Theatre. . . the book is much more than just than just Stage Fright 2001 [the previous edition]. It's a completely new book which expands on the original material, includes new areas which had not been previously covered, and generally takes a much more serious, technical approach to the subject."
Booknews
Addresses the unique health and safety problems that threaten those working in the entertainment industries, including film, television, theater, theme parks, circuses, parades, and fireworks displays. Chemist, artist, and industrial hygienist Rossol describes the hazards of theatrical paints, makeup, pigments, dyes, plastics, solvents, woodworking, welding, asbestos, fog and other special effects and offers ways to mitigate their harmful effects.

Meet the Author

Monona Rossol is a chemist, artist, and industrial hygienist. She is the founder and president of ACTS (Arts, Crafts and Theater Safety), a not-for-profit corporation based in New York City dedicated to providing health and safety services to the arts. She writes a monthly newsletter on government regulations and research that affect the arts and theater, and she has published numerous articles in professional journals. She is the author of five books, one of which, The Artist's Complete Health and Safety Guide, won a 1996 Choice Outstanding Academic Book Award from the Association of College and Research Libraries.

She was born into a theatrical family and worked as a professional entertainer from ages three to seventeen. She enrolled in the University of Wisconsin where she earned a B.S. in chemistry, an M.S. majoring in ceramics and sculpture, and an M.F.A. with majors in ceramics and glassblowing and a minor in music. While in school, she worked as a chemist, taught and exhibited art work, performed with University of Wisconsin music and theater groups, and worked yearly in summer stock. After leaving school, she performed in musical and straight acting roles in Off and Off Off Broadway theaters and cabaret.

As an artist, she was in the first glassblowing courses taught at the college level by Harvey Littleton. Her ceramics, sculpture, and blown glass have been exhibited in more than forty group and four solo shows. She is a voting member of the American Society of Testing and Materials subcommittee (ASTM D-4236) that sets toxicity labeling standards for art materials

As an industrial hygienist, she worked seven years as a research chemist for the University of Wisconsin and a year with an industrial research laboratory. She has been a full professional member of the American Industrial Hygiene Association since 1984, and the health and safety director for Local 829 of the United Scenic Artists since 1995.

In 1980, Rossol developed and taught the first two college-level "Health Hazards in the Arts" courses in the United States at the University of Wisconsin. She has now taught these courses throughout the United States, Canada, and Australia. She taught the first recorded "Right to Know" OSHA training for theater in 1986 at La Cage Aux Folles in the Palace Theater in New York City, and specializes in OSHA training of art and theater workers and teachers in the United States and Canada.

Rossol is a sought-after lecturer and consultant in the United States, Canada, Australia, England, and Mexico. She lives in New York City.
