If you follow the news about workplace safety or workers' compensation, you might get the idea that many employers simply refuse to follow the safety practices required for their industries.

We like our gorgeous nails in New Jersey, too, though, and the job doesn't differ based on geography. Are your dazzling fingertips endangering workers?
