Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis promoted nail salon safety at OSHA Harwood grantee event on September 27 with Vietnamese nail salon workers and local community leaders in Falls Church, VA.
The OSHA Susan Harwood grantee Boat People SOS hosted the event. They are a national organization that provides assistance to workers for the Vietnamese-American community on workplace safety and workers’ rights.
For workers in the industry, there is a webpage by OSHA on nail salon safety with different resources including a guide called “Stay Healthy and Safe While Giving Manicures and Pedicures: A Guide for Nail Salon Workers” which is sectioned in three parts: chemicals, ergonomics, and biological hazards. You can view the document in both, English and Vietnamese.
