Safety for Beauty Therapists

WHS Guidelines and Intense Pulsed Light Safety Information for Beauty Therapists


Spa & Beauty Guide to Safety & Hygiene 2014/15 – Released

BU6-4-Chart-Image-UPDATED_Double_72dpiPro-Visual Publishing is pleased to announce the release of the 2014/15 edition of their highly successful Spa & Beauty Guide to Safety & Hygiene. Pro-Visual Publishing has worked alongside the Association of Professional Aestheticians of Australia to create an informative guide containing the most current safety and hygiene information for the industry. This guide is an essential resource for all salon owners and beauticians throughout Australia.

Salon owners must be aware of WHS laws and regulations concerning the beauty industry in order to create and maintain a successful business. This guide highlights the most important criteria salon owners must follow to ensure said success, including information on insurance, protocols for treatments, client consultation forms and ensuring all staff members are up-to-date with relevant qualifications.

Intense Pulsed Light is one of the hottest trends in the beauty industry right now. There are a number of treatments and benefits that make Intense Pulsed Light so great for all clients which are explained in the guide. However, there are important WHS requirements that must be followed when performing Intense Pulsed Light treatments, including associated health risks, undesired side effects, licensing laws and regulations and operator performance criteria.

Pre and post client care is another major topic for this year’s Spa & Beauty Guide. Body Sugaring and manicures and pedicures are two examples of treatments that need pre and post client care. The guide provides detailed information for therapists to extend to clients. But to learn the ways of a professional in a comprehensive way, studying from places like Valley Retreat Day Spa reaps you benefits.

“I would like to thank all of the sponsors of the Spa & Beauty Guide to Safety & Hygiene 2014/15. Their support has made it possible for the guide to be distributed free of charge”, said John Hutchings, CEO, Pro-Visual Publishing.
