The BAD

Nail dust is DANGEROUS

There are two major reasons why nail dust is the number one danger to your health in the industry today.

Nail dust is sharp.

Inhaled, it cuts away at the soft tissues in our bodies and this produces mucus giving us drippy noses, watery eyes and throat tickles. Ingested (ie: with a cup of coffee) it is now cutting into the softest tissues in our body. Externally it cuts away at our biggest organ, our skin, with every movement.

Nail dust is 100% product.

Everything that you have applied and everything any other nail technician has applied before you, you have now inhaled. Read your MSDS’s – the effects of these products are the direct result of you inhaling nail dust.

This is NOT what you want inside you.

If you are working from home you have now exposed your loved ones to these same dangers. With every inhalation the chemicals in nail dust supress your immune system. Doctors are calling the inhalation of this dust the ‘next asbestosis’.

This report has been done by an independent testing facility in a working salon. This shows the actual amount of dust inhaled by a nail technician doing one hand of nails without a dust extraction workstation.

The GOOD

Why no dust is no fuss!

emendeeworkstations have been specifically invented, innovated and designed to increase the workplace health and safety of the nail technician.

Salon owners and nail technicians under the OH&S act (96-i) are responsible for the clean air of their employees and clients.

This means you are liable for litigation.

All emendeeworkstations and emendeesnus come with a full dust report, done in-salon under normal working conditions by an independent testing facility. This report proves a greater than 99% dust removal and better than 68% odour removal from the salon. This is of course important for your health but also for the health of your business.

The dust report is positive proof that you are at the leading edge in caring for the clean air of your employees and clients.

This helps to keep your business safe.

On top of this, the emendeeworkstations are 100% tax deductable when rented or purchased. No nail technician can afford to work without an emendee.
