Certain health and safety issues, hazards, and procedures are inherent in practice, performance, teaching, and listening. These include but are not limited to hearing health, vocal health, musculoskeletal health, and injury prevention. A primary factor in health and safety largely depends on personal decisions. Students and faculty are personally responsible for avoiding risk and preventing injuries to themselves during and after study at NKU School of the Arts (SOTA).
The purpose of the Health & Safety resource page is to provide students and faculty with information regarding health and safety topics relevant to the practice, performance, teaching, and listening of music.
This information is provided to increase awareness of the health and safety concerns of musicians, theatre and dance practitioners, and the development of life-long healthy habits; and address the accreditation standards of the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM). Further, NKU SOTA seeks to promote an environment of wellness among its students and faculty.
