The two-foot-square area between a nail tech’s mouth and work area; the area wherein dust, vapors, and particles can be inhaled if a nail technician does not wear a mask or otherwise protect herself against exposure and inhalation.
Since 1988, Aerovex Systems has developed innovative products to provide proper ventilation appropriate for all salon chemical services. Now Aerovex is unveiling a new, state-of-the-art Nails Source Capture Ventilation System featuring “Healthy Air” technologies.
The invisible beachball-sized sphere of air that surrounds your face in all directions is a great place to start implementing efficient salon ventilation. NAILS walks you through all of the things you need to know, from what to look for in a ventilation system to how the components work to a few tweaks you can make in your day-to-day habits for extra protection. Get ready to breathe easy.
Be sure to download “Stay Healthy and Safe While Giving Manicures and Pedicures,” a recently released 20-page booklet created by OSHA (the Occupational Safety and Health Administration).
Since most regulations are intended to protect the salon-going public rather than the nail technicians themselves, Seattle’s Healthy Nail Salon Project reaches out to salon workers to offer education and training on safe practices.
A is for apple, unless you are a nail tech on the frontlines of client safety. Join in an alphabetical micro-tour of how we clean up.
