Health and Safety

A thorough knowledge and understanding of health and safety is really important in any salon environment. This is to make sure that you are working in a way that is not dangerous to either yourself or others, that you are aware of hazards that exist and the control measures that must be put in place to reduce the risk of harm or injury. 

You are ultimately responsible for the health and safety of

• Yourself whilst at work
• Your colleagues that you work with
• The clients in your care
• Any other person who may enter your business premises 

You must be aware of:

• Health and safety legislation (laws)
