OSHA has updated with hazard alert to hair salon owners after new agency investigations, an FDA warning and incorrect material safety data sheets were sent to hair salons. The products under question are the Brazilian Blowout Acai Professional Smoothing Solution and Brasil Cacau Cadiveu which can release high amounts of formaldehyde during normal use. As always, we recommend safety training to help combat work hazards.

– The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration has issued a revised hazard alert to hair salon owners and workers about potential formaldehyde exposure from working with certain hair smoothing and straightening products. The revised alert was prompted by the results of agency investigations, a warning letter issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and factually incorrect information recently sent to salons by a company that manufactures hair products.
