Print Healthy Salons For All

There are thousands of nail salons in New York City, working hard to keep New Yorkers looking great. But long hours of exposure to nail polish, lacquers, and other chemicals can be dangerous for salon workers. Many nail technicians are recent immigrants and unfamiliar with their labor rights or how to protect their health in the workplace.

CUP worked with Adhikaar and designers Welcome Workshop to create Healthy Salons For All, a guide for nail salon workers and customers. The poster illustrates safe workplace practices and important worker rights, and provides guidance in English, Spanish, Korean, Chinese, and Nepali. Adhikaar launched the project in May 2015 in a training for salon workers, and will distribute the poster through its allies in the citywide Healthy Salons For All campaign.
