OSHA on Nail Salon Workers
From OSHA’s Office of Outreach Services and Alliances –
OSHA has issued a publication called Stay Healthy and Safe While Giving Manicures and Pedicures: A Guide for Nail Salon Workers (OSHA Publication 3542). This publication provides information to help nail salon workers stay healthy and safe while giving manicures and pedicures. It describes possible hazards in nail salons and good work practices to protect nail salon workers from chemical hazards, muscle strains, and diseases. It is written in plain language and is geared toward workers with limited reading skills or who do not speaking English as a first language. The guide is currently available in English but Spanish, Korean, and Vietnamese translations will be available soon. Free copies of this publication can be ordered online or by phone (202-693-1888 or 1-800-321-OSHA).
