In Santa Clara County, there are over 850 nail salons, with more than 5000 nail technicians. A majority of the nail technicians are Vietnamese women in their reproductive years. Every day, nail salon owners and workers endure prolonged exposure to low levels of toxic products that may increase risk of cancer, allergies, respiratory, neurological and reproductive health issues. There is a lack of enforceable laws regulating the level of toxin exposure for nail salon workers. In a joint effort with the CA Healthy Nail Salon Collaborative, SCC is implementing the Healthy Nail Salon Recognition Program to protect the health of nail salon workers and customers, and to improve indoor air quality.
