Confused about salon safety? Struggling to understand standards on formaldehyde, blood borne pathogens and hazard communications? You are in good company. Let the Professional Beauty Association (PBA) help you navigate these confusing issues with an informative and clarifying webinar. Led by salon expert Doug Schoon, this webinar will cover the following critical topics:

  • Who and what is OSHA?
  • Compliance requirements for salons
  • Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs)
  • Formaldehyde, blood borne pathogens and hazard communications
  • Top OSHA issues and violations within the salon
Doug Schoon, a leading research scientist and educator, will shed light on how these topics relate to salons and the professional beauty industry in terms we can all understand.  Proper salon ventilation is key to providing a safe environment to salon employees and their clients.  To view what Mr. Schoon has to say about proper nail salon ventilation, please go to minute 27:00 in the video.  For proper hair salon ventilation please go to minute 53:00.  Click here to view the webinar.

For nail technician prospects to see the Nails Source Capture System in use, please see excerpt of minute marks 27:00-28:40 and corresponding slides listed below:

“Now I want to spend a moment talking about ventilation. In fact we will talk about this a couple of times. In my opinion, one of the biggest problems we have in the salon industry today is the lack of proper ventilation. Before you were in the space where your salon is now (and it used to be a travel agency or something like this), and you move in and put your salon there, you have ventilation for a travel agency, you don’t have ventilation for a salon. Often times salons ignore this requirement. They don’t put in proper ventilation. This is EXTREMELY important. You don't just need ventilation; you need ventilation that is appropriate for what is going on in that salon. Whether it’s nails (as you see on the right, a device that captures vapors and dust for nail salons) or for hair (they also make these devices for hair). These images area courtesy of a company called Aerovex Systems, which I don’t represent and don’t work for, I just love their products and have tested them and found them to be very effective so I always use them as an example of kinds of ventilation systems that are useful in the industry and definitely suggest you look into ventilation. And again I’ll come back and talk about that in a moment because it’s so important.”

“Now the next slide points out something I really want to stress again. When it comes to these types of products (keratin hair smoothing & other chemical services), appropriate ventilation IS THE KEY. Salons will spend huge amounts of money on shears and incredible amounts of money on pedicure thrones but they don’t want to invest in proper ventilation, and that’s a problem. You really need to pay attention to this. If you don’t have the proper ventilation, or the appropriate ventilation for these types of services, you should not be performing them in your salon. You need the kind of ventilation that is going to lower exposure to below sensory irritation levels. If your having sensory irritation levels in the salon, whether it’s a nail salon or any kind of product your using (many types of products can cause sensory irritation). If you’re having it [sensory irritation] you want to look at your ventilation. The one on the right is what we typically see, and that’s good to have, but you should supplement your existing salon ventilation with what’s called local source capture ventilation, which is shown on the left. This captures the vapors directly from the source and keeps them from being circulated around the room. Putting a fan on is not ventilation, that’s circulation.And we don’t want to circulate, we want to clean the air or we want to remove the vapors directly to the outdoors. 


Getting a hold of a good local ventilation control specialist, (someone who does A/C and ventilation) is important. They can look at your salon and give you good advice about how to improve ventilation. And also I recommend buying a local source capture device like this that can be used where you have a heavy load. Where you’re perming, perm smells for instance, even hair spray; these are great for capturing vapors or even preventing dust form getting into the rest of the salon.”

"I would never perform a Keratin Smoothing Treatment without the Chemical Source Capture System. I am confident that my clients are being protected from any harmful vapors or fumes that are being given off when performing keratin based treatments with high heat. Prior to having the system, I was well aware that the formaldehyde content was high. My clients still wanted the treatment so they had to suffer through burning eyes and itchy throats. I was ready to give up performing the treatments altogether. I have had the system in my salon since September 2010 and have had many referrals due to the fact that I have the Chemical Source Capture System in place. All my clients and co-workers have commented on how great the system is. It removes any vapors in the air. Our salon never smells like a salon. The Three Zone Protection system truly improves the quality of the air in the salon environment. We’re very happy. Thanks!!!"

"Your new Healthy Air source capture system is far superior to the other systems we've tried. There are no longer any sensory irritation issues in our salon. It has allowed us to increase our keratin hair smoothing traffic by providing a safe & comfortable salon environment. We especially like the easy maintenance, and not having to take the machine apart to change filters. The clear hood & LED light provide great visibility. I recommend Aerovex Systems "Three Zone Protection" approach to salon ventilation, including your great air purifier and special salon HVAC filters. Thank you Aerovex!"
