April 23, 2018 (Sacramento) -- The California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) this week issued guidelines to help local government agencies in California voluntarily establish and implement a program to make salons healthier for nail care workers, who are exposed to toxic chemicals in some nail care products.

The program must first be adopted by local governments, but thus far, none of the five participating jurisdictions are in San Diego County.  In addition to creating safer working conditions for workers and customers, the program helps consumers identify salons which have met state standards through gold and silver certificates that qualifying salons may display.
