Main type of hazards Managing the risk
Slips, trips and falls:
Most accidents occur when staff trip over trailing leads and uneven floor surfaces, or fall when tryingto reach items e.g. by standing on chairs.
-Fasten cables and leads securely or re-route overhead if possible.
- Unplug all equipment when not in use.
- Keep passageways, workstations, and stairs clear. Clean up spillages immediately.
- Provide adequate lighting.
- Provide proper step ladders to reach anything not accessible from the ground.
Obstructed exit routes, for example bystock, can prevent escape and provide fuel for fires. Many products used in beauty treatments, particularly aerosols, are highly flammable and potentially
explosive if exposed to high temperatures.
-Keep all escape routes and fire exits clear, and make regular checks to ensure
this is the case.
- Store products, particularly aerosols, away from naked flames or sources of heat,
at or belowroom temperature and in a dry atmosphere.
- Do not use portable gas heaters as they have a naked flame.
- Switch off and unplug all electrical appliances at night.
- Make sure employees are aware of the action they must take in the event of a fire.

_ Fit 30mA residual current devices (RCD’s) to all sockets which hand held
equipment and sunbeds are plugged into.
_Provide adequate sockets at every workstation, do not overload sockets
and avoid the use of adaptors.
_ Ensure all hot and cold water pipes are suitably bonded and earthed.
Some of the preparations and products
used in the beauty salon contain

both skin and respiratory problems.
Products used for cleaning can also
be hazardous. _...
