This research paper looks into beautician’s potential health issues that could be affected by different hazards working at nail salons. There are several research papers that analyse and identify particular health hazards associated with the nail salon workers. When analysing the research papers the results indicated that greater occurrence of a range of musculoskeletal problems, respiratory symptoms and allergies/skin problems are reported by nail technicians. This is indicative of a range of health issues that occur to workers within this environment and demonstrates the potential hazards in nail salons that lead to these health symptoms. The available scientific literature and other peer reviewed literature concluded that a wide range of harmful and toxic chemicals can be found in nail products. Studies of occupational health effects in nail technicians have concluded that the environment within nail salons can be linked to several musculoskeletal, respiratory and dermatological symptoms. Research informs and highlights any potential areas for further discussion, the health effects to nail salon workers from contact with toxic chemicals and exposure to dust is an area that could benefit from further discussion and research. As research paper looking at hazards to nail technician health, it is important to assess all available information, to understand how the researcher recognizes established hazards. The time frame for this part is not limited to most current documents. The materials, including any valuable information on this topic, will be included as some dated information relating to some chemicals is the most recent information available. The systematic literature review will include free full text peer review articles. Reports, reviews and clinical assessments’ in English are summarized to critically assess and evaluate all research studies on health issues among nail salon workers to establish what is already known and to evaluate the known or potential health issues amongst workers.
