As a nail tech, you understand that you must comply with your state board’s regulations. But did you know that you also must comply with OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) regulations as well? To help you do just that, OSHA has created a guide that covers possible hazards in nail salons and good work practices that should be used to protect you from chemical hazards, muscle strains, and diseases. The booklet, Stay Healthy and Safe While Giving Manicures and Pedicures: A Guide for Nail Salon Workers, also explains your rights as a nail salon employee.
