Health and safety can be seen as bureaucratic red tape confusing. or technical The purpose of this book is hopefully to change minds. The first part deals with legal requirements in straightforward. language without reference to legal duties and the second part gets. a bit more technical By following the guidance in part 1 you should. be complying with the law Part 2 is there to justify the reasoning. behind part 1 for those who are interested in the law and more. technical matters, This is not a comprehensive guide to health and safety law however. it does focus on matters of most concern in the beauty industry. those topics which give rise to the most serious risks or common. If you want additional advice do not hesitate to contact your health. and safety enforcement team who will be pleased to advise you It is. more important to us that we help you run your business free from. accidents and ill health than have to advise you how to put things. right after they have gone wrong, Please send corrections suggestions for improvements or requests. for content to, Michael hale copeland gov uk, Page 2 of 60.

home fit and healthy to enjoy their own time, So as an employer your duty is to make sure your employees are. not harmed by the workplace or any workplace activities This. includes physical harm from, Standing up too long or adopting awkward postures. Page 5 of 60, Carrying things that are too heavy, Falling or slipping causing injuries. You must also consider harm from chemicals used at work and in the. beauty industry that can be a very large number of products While. all products must be safe to use on clients this does not necessarily. make them safe for use at work because people who work with them. Page 6 of 60, are exposed for much longer times whereas the client normally only. has a very short exposure, Employees have a duty to follow health and safety instructions from.
the employer and use personal protective equipment as instructed. As well as duties to staff the employer also has a duty to protect and. care for customers, We haven t mentioned any laws or regulations yet but if you are. interested there is a more comprehensive review in part 2. Page 7 of 60, 1 2 Insurance, It is a legal requirement to provide Employers Compulsory Liability. Insurance in case any of your employees are injured at work and you. have been negligent such that you have to pay compensation All. businesses have to purchase this, An additional add on is Public Liability Insurance which can be. provided by your insurance company Usually the two policies are. available in a package which can be cheaper than purchasing the two. separately, Page 8 of 60, 1 3 Safety policies and risk assessment. Safety policies are a written statement by the employer indicating. their commitment to health and safety and the organisation to. achieve compliance The writing of the statement is an indication. that the employer has considered legal requirements However a. safety policy is not required if you have less than five employees. This is because the organisation is so small that verbal. communication between staff is sufficient Larger organisations. being more complex require the additional effort, A policy template is available on line or at appendix 1.
Page 9 of 60, Similarly with risk assessment these only need to be in writing when. there are five or more employees unless the risks are particularly. significant really dangerous, Risk assessments for different business groups are available on the. HSE website a sample of which is produced at appendix 3 Risk. assessment need not be an overly complicated process. 1 What is the hazard, 2 Who is likely to be affected. 3 What are the chances of it happening, 4 Record your findings if necessary. 5 Review and update your risk assessment when necessary if. products or methods change or if new better ways of doing. things come to light, Major causes of accidents are discussed on an individual basis but.
one of the major areas of concern in the beauty industry relates to. the use of beauty products and how they can affect employees and. sometimes your customers, Page 10 of 60, 1 4 Accident reporting. When an employee or self employed person has an accident at work. and is off for more than seven days then the incident is reportable to. the enforcing authority in most cases this will be your local. If a member of the public is injured as a result of a work activity and. is taken directly to hospital from your salon then this is also. reportable, Page 11 of 60, While you can report directly to your local authority the preferred. method is online at, http www hse gov uk riddor report htm. Reports are monitored by local authorities and investigated. according to severity of injury, Some cases of work related disease are also reportable these. include dermatitis and asthma, Needless to say death at the workplace should be reported as.
quickly as possible and outside of normal office hours the police. must be informed and they can contact the enforcing authority. although there is usually an out of hours contact number. Page 12 of 60, 1 5 Dermatitis, Essentially there are three types of dermatitis. 1 The first is caused by frequent washing that removes the. natural oils and greases that protect the skin The cure is to. use hand creams that rehydrate the skin Hand cream can be. used to prevent this or gloves used as barrier Some solvents. have a similar degreasing effect for instance ethanol or. 2 The second type is contact dermatitis where the chemical. actually burns the skin some of these are used in hair. treatment and gloves must be worn when using them for. example peroxide used for lightening hair colour, 3 The third type is the result of an allergic reaction to a. substance a tiny amount of the product causes rapid and. painful inflammation of the skin The best preventative. technique is to substitute a different product that does not. cause a reaction but gloves are the next best, Page 13 of 60. 1 6 Asthma, Occupational asthma is different from the more normally. encountered asthma in that it is caused by substances at work These. can be chemicals or even biological materials The biological. materials e g skin hair nails are recognised as respiratory. sensitisers Many of the common substances used in the nail. industry e g acrylates can make an asthmatic condition worse but. to date are not known to cause asthma, The problem with occupational asthma is that it is very.
unpredictable someone who is not prone to asthma can develop an. allergic response to a substance after years of exposure then the. tiniest exposure can set off the response wheezing difficulty. breathing etc While we do not like to be alarmist it can be a life. threatening condition and some workers have had to change jobs. The only action available once sensitised is to stop working with the. substance causing the asthma and while there may be alternative. products sometimes those alternatives do not give the finish that. the client or practitioner want, The best course of action is prevention and this requires the. provision of extract ventilation preferably as close as possible to the. Page 14 of 60, source of the substance Just removing the odours from the room is. insufficient preventing inhalation is essential, One of the most effective control measures is pre employment. screening of prospective employees to identify any individuals who. may have conditions that could be affected by work. 1 7 Chemicals and product safety, All products should be safe to use as cosmetics but they can have. occupational health effects so it is important to obtain the material. safety data sheets MSDS for all products used Provided they are. used in accordance with the manufacturers instructions there. should not be a problem e g wear vinyl gloves eye protection etc. However ensure good ventilation is a very general expression that. requires more consideration Consider the health effects if these are. minimal or not listed fine but if they are severe for example.
