OSHA recently posted a new resource on its website to help nail salon workers stay healthy and safe while giving manicures and pedicures.
The publication - Stay Healthy and Safe While Giving Manicures and Pedicures: A Guide for Nail Salon Workers - describes possible hazards in nail salons and good work practices that should be used to protect nail salon workers from chemical hazards, muscle strains and diseases. The guide is currently available in English. Spanish, Korean and Vietnamese translations will be available soon.
Free copies of this guide are available for order from OSHA’s Office of Communications at (202) 693-1999 or can be downloaded from the Health Hazards in Nail Salons website - www.osha.gov/SLTC/nailsalons/index.html
