Abstract
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) received a request for a health hazard evaluation from Trinidad State Junior College (TSJC), Trinidad, Colorado. TSJC requested that NIOSH evaluate exposure to chemicals used by cosmetology students for applying arti. cial . ngernails. Recommendations to reduce exposures resulted in the development of a new multiple workstation manicure table with effective downdraft ventilation. The new table was developed through the combined efforts of the TSJC programs of Occupational Safety, Building Trades, and Cosmetology and CobbMechanical Contractors, Colorado Springs, Colorado. Although NIOSH has previously reported the development of a single workstation ventilation system for applying arti. cial . ngernails, this case study describes an effectivemulti-station system that may be more cost effective for workplaces where several clients are served simultaneously.
