Formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates. These are just a few of the toxic chemicals you may be exposed to if you work in a hair or nail salon. This exposure could be harming your health. For example, studies show that salon workers have a higher risk of certain cancers, neurological disorders, and miscarriage than people in other jobs. Our latest webinar, “Detox Your Booth”, highlights the chemicals you may be exposed to in the workplace, tips for reducing your exposure, and ways to raise your voice for healthy salons. This is an important listen for all salon workers, owners and patrons alike.
About Our Webinars
Women’s Voices for the Earth hosts the Body & Soul Series for our members with a webinar each season featuring guest experts on different women’s health issues. These are great opportunities to get tips for protecting your health from toxic chemicals, learn how to take action, and “meet” and chat with other WVE women.
These interactive webinars are one hour long — both over the phone so that you can talk with the expert and other WVE members — and online so you can see the slides. Oh yeah, did we mention they’re free?
