This standard only applies to staff authorized through training to restrain a juvenile. However, if your fingernail length interferes with the effectiveness and efficiency of your job performance – how well and how quickly you can perform those duties (i.e., typing, washing clothes, etc…), then you should trim your nails to the standard length (not to extend beyond the finger tip). Also, if you or your supervisor believe the length of your nails might present a safety risk (such as: cause injury during a physical confrontation), you are required to trim them to the standard length.During RCDT training, no staff member may wear false nails or have fingernail length extend beyond the tip of each finger.
