Nail Salons

The goal of the Boston Safe Nail Salons Project is to protect workers and the public from exposure to hazardous chemicals and air pollution in nail salons. Nail salon workers are exposed to an array of potentially hazardous compounds during nearly every service they provide. Safe Nail Salons will prevent or reduce disproportionate environmental and occupational health effects from the industry on workers and clients, as well as the surrounding neighborhoods.​​

The Safe Shops Program offers free trainings and technical assistance at your salon during a time that is convenient to you.  Our staff can help you find solutions to problems, such as improving ventilation and the proper use of personal protective equipment, and can help answer questions about regulations and your health. 


Please feel free to explore the pages at the right, including our Resources page, or contact the Environmental Health Office at 617-534-5965 for more information or to request a training.

Curious about our trainings? Check out the BPHC Facebook Page for photos of a Safe Shops Program training.
