Did you know that there are
nearly 15,000 licensed nail technicians in Oregon? The Oregon Collaborative for Healthy
Nail Salons (OCHNS) works to improve the environmental health of nail
salon workers and customers through education and outreach.
We hope to create solutions
to challenges faced in the industry that relate to environmental,
health and safety by sharing ideas, knowledge and practical
experience. Although members of OCHNS include state agencies,
the Collaborative has no regulatory authority and does not inspect or
enforce. Are you a salon owner, nail technician or educator? We'd like to hear from you!
