ARB's Draft Report of Outdoor Health Risk Assessment (HRA) of Emissions from Nail Salons is now available. (PDF - 1.67 MB)

The goal of the HRA is to determine if the use of certain compounds in nail coatings will impact the outdoor ambient air near nail salons at levels that pose health risks to the public.  The report does not evaluate the impact on health of nail salon workers occupationally exposed to the TACs, or people breathing indoor air contaminated with nail salon emissions.
