Chemicals Risk for Nail Salon Workers

Chemicals Risk for Nail Salon Workers

A study conducted by the Cancer Prevention Institute of California involving 80 Vietnamese women from 20 different salons in California claims that Toulene, a solvent used in nail salons can cause illness.

Toulene was said to be associated with neurological, reproductive, and endocrine damage, and workers in the study wore a monitor that measured amounts of the chemical – along with ethyl acetate, and isopropyl acetate.

The study found that average toluene levels were about twice the recommended amount to the employees. Reports also said that nearly thirty-five percent reported irritations of the nose, throat, lungs, skin, and eyes. The study recommended more worker safety, including policy changes to occupational exposure limits, reports say.

  1. After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
