Using the classifications of harmful biological agents included in Directive 2000/54/EC [23] and Ordinance of Polish Minister of Health [24], it was ascertained that in the working environment of art conservators one can find not only microorganisms from risk group 1 (i.e., agents that are unlikely to cause human disease), but also those from risk group 2 (i.e., agents that can cause human disease and might be a hazard to workers; among others, Aspergillus fumigatus species and genera of which certain species are classified into this risk group, Staphylococcus spp., Arthrobacter spp., Brevibacterium spp., Bacillus spp., Actinomyces spp., Nocardia spp., Rhodococcus spp., Aspergillus spp., Penicillium spp.
