NYLPI, as part of the Healthy Nail Salons Coalition, has been at the forefront of advocacy efforts for more environmental safety regulations in the nail salon industry. New York state recently issued proposed regulations
for enhanced ventilation within the industry and set guidelines for installation and compliance. NYLPI worked with our environmental justice partner organizations to gain broad support for the regulations, which will mitigate workers’, owners’ and customers’ exposure to harmful chemicals. Our Environmental Justice team sent comments
in support of the regulations to the New York Department of State and will continue to work with our partners to ensure they are effectively implemented.
