December 9, 2014
Though a national organization recently revealed a study linking long term exposure to chemicals at beauty salons to health problems of employees, the issue has been a topic of concern in Oregon and beyond for years.
“Salons really can be a hazardous place to work,” said Alexandra Scranton, director of science and research at Women’s Voices for the Earth. “There are things that salon workers can do now to reduce their risk but we really need some changes in the industry. It’s really paramount to have safer products.”
