This forum has been created as a result of several requests by those of us active in safety matters to have a special place where questions and information regarding safety in glass bead making can be deposited. It is not a forum for general discussions, show 'n tell about beads, or any topics not related to bead making safety. It was brought up and briefly discussed at the ISGB Board meeting in Alexandria prior to the Gathering.

People like myself, Stan Wolfersberger, and I hope others, will try to monitor this forum on a regular basis to ensure that questions get a response and hopefully a correct answer. However, we are not the only sources of good information and anyone can respond to a safety query if they know the requested information.

So, if you have questions related to bead making safety, here is the best place to find answers.
