Long-term exposure to dust from acrylic or even natural nail filing, and fumes from beauty products like nail varnishes, nail polish removers, nail glue, hair treatment products, and bleach treatment products can be harmful to health!
Beauty salon workers and beauty technicians end up being around a number of hazardous fumes and all kinds of particulate matter. You could argue that these only occur in very small quantities. However, without proper extraction systems, these materials build up in the area.
These products, and the dust and fumes they generate, will affect your customers as well. While the effects will be more pronounced in those who are sensitive, they will affect everyone.
However, clients will only have to suffer through short-term exposure. It will be your employees who will bear the full brunt of the effects of these dangerous materials.
Proper extraction solutions might mean extra expense, but they help keep your salon a healthy workplace.
A healthy workplace means your employees take fewer days of sick leave, or time off for poor health. This in turn translates to less loss of revenue. It also means that your salon technicians are healthier and happier.
If you want to give your workers and clients a salon that is as good for their health as it is for their appearance, this talk is a must-attend!
