Bibliographic information Mar. 2005, No.649, p.2-9. Illus. 2 ref.
Abstract The renovation of the Gallery of Mirrors in the Versailles palace will take three years, ending in the spring of 2007. Around 60 specialists are involved in restoring old paintings or in regilding the stucco. Hazards include the risk of fire, work at heights, exposure to harmful substances in poorly-ventilated areas and the presence on site of many subcontractors, often crafts enterprises. This article discusses some of the ways in which these hazards are managed on this site.
