Whether or not hairdressers on the premises are self-employed or working for the salon, the Health and Safety at Work Act maintains that all business owners must provide a written policy statement, as all professionals on the premises, self-employed or otherwise, have a legal duty of safety towards their colleagues and customers. Before writing your salon Health and Safety Statement, if is necessary to carry out a risk assessment in all areas of your salon. Risk Assessment is a careful examination of what could cause harm or loss, so that you can weigh up whether you have taken enough precautions or should do more. Unit Maintain Health and Safety in the Salon Health & Safety at Work Act The Electricity at Work Regulations These regulations cover the installation, maintenance and use of all electrical equipment in the workplace. Remember: Electricity can kill or cause severe burns. In a salon there is not just one person responsible for health and safety. It is the responsibility of every hairdresser in a salon to look out for potential hazards and to conduct themselves in a safe way. However, you are not just looking out for yourself.
The Health and Safety at Work etc Act requires all businesses with five or more employees to provide a written Health and Safety Policy. Your Health and Safety Policy should clearly set out how you manage health and safety in your workplace by defining who does what and when and how they do it. The book aims to give the reader a basic understanding of what is required in order to work in a hairdressing salon, the basic science of hairdressing and the health and safety issues.

I like the first title better, catchy and gets to the point about health and safety. Every nail tech should read this book/5(15).
