Back To Work Safely
The hair and beauty sector is one of the next sectors opening after the national lockdown was put in place. With a proposed reopening date of the 12th of April, it is imperative that your staff have all the equipment needed to keep them and your customers safe. Such businesses are naturally hard to maintain social distancing. This is because employees need to work in close proximity to their clients for an extended period of time. The person who is providing the service should be wearing further protection in addition to the mask which they would usually wear in public places.
Government guidance on “Working Safely During Coronavirus” was updated on the 13th of August last year. It stated that practitioners providing these services should be wearing both a type II face mask and a clear visor. Although these guidelines were put in place last year, it’s likely that they’ll remain the same as the pandemic continues.
The clear PPE visor needs to be able to cover the face. This will provide a barrier between the wearer and their client. The reasoning behind wearing a visor too is because the wearer’s face will be protected. This can be against respiratory droplets caused by clients who may sneeze, cough, or speak. The visor must fit the user properly and be worn in the correct manner. It should be covering the forehead, going past the chin, and fit around the side of the face. Previous advice was to wear a clear visor only, however, scientific studies have shown wearing both a visor and a face mask offers optimal protection.
