Resumen This study explored the possible risks of musculoskeletal and respiratory ill health for beauty therapists who deliver massage and spray tanning treatments. The delivery of these treatments was observed in three salons who also offered facials, waxing, manicures and pedicures. Postural analyses indicated an overall medium risk level of developing MSDs. However, as the reported durations were short and frequencies low, the true risk may be lower. When delivering spray tanning treatments, the workers' personal exposures to specific volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds were all low and the active ingredient in spray tan solution was not detected. The bacterial/fungal contamination of the samples was very low and not considered to pose a risk to health.
