staple removal

Removing rusty staples from brittle newspapers.

It’s flu season, but there are more shots than the flu vaccine that you should consider getting if you work in Conservation.

We deal with a lot of rusty staples, various rodent and insect “evidence” and other animal and human unmentionables in our daily routine. I always advise matching the job with the appropriate personal protection equipment (PPE) such as gloves, dust masks or respirators, and clothing that can be washed in hot soapy water.

It is also wise to make sure your tetanus vaccine is up to date. And consider a hepatitis vaccine, one sewer-overflow response in the stacks and you will thank me. Who knew conservation could be so risky?
