Salon Guidelines During Covid -19
The Nail & Beauty Lounge Back-to-Work Plan
Our aim is to provide our services in a safe, hygienic manner, as always with the health and safety of our staff and our clients paramount. Whilst we pride ourselves on our very high standards in health and hygiene, these have now been revised.
Whilst we have comprehensive Risk Assessments and Procedures documented, we have put together a simple guide to what will be happening in our salon so that you know what to expect when you come to us.
This should avoid confusion and possible conflict.
We ask that clients requiring several services make block bookings to avoid several visits.
As appointments will be in demand, we have introduced a 48-hour cancellation period.
In the event of the government changing dates for reopening, we will inform all clients with bookings.
Clients must inform us if they have tested positive for Covid-19
You will be asked to check in, using the Track and Trace app
Health and Safety
The salon will be a clinical environment, with excess decorations and soft furnishings removed.
All desks are fitted with dust extraction for your safety.
A hospital-grade steriliser is used to sterilise ALL metal tools.
As always, single-use tools will be used, where possible.
Each client will have an individual, sterilised pack of tools and files.
Paper towels will replace towels and disposable desk towels will be used.
All PPE and disposables will be discarded between each client.
Risk assessments and H&S policies and procedures have been revised and all staff have been appropriately trained.
There will be a 5 minutes slot between client appointments to clean and disinfect desk, sweep, change own PPE and wipe door handles and light switches with hospital grade cleaning solutions.
Arrival/Waiting Automatic hand sanitisers will be available outside at the entrance to the salon and a no-touch sink unit with paper towels beside the reception desk unit as you enter. All clients will be asked to wash their hands on arrival and go to their designated desk. This avoids waiting in the salon. Therefore, please do not arrive too early/late for your appointment. Please do not bring children, friends or family members to wait as this has been removed.
Please pay by card, where possible to avoid money transactions. Rebooks will be made at your nail desk.
As always, we will have a computerised record of all clients and visitors to the salon, so we know who is on the premises at any given time.
Staff will wear all relevant PPE
Uniforms will be worn on arrival at the salon and removed at the end of the day and taken home to be laundered. No long sleeves will be worn. Work shoes will be left in the salon.
Health & Safety Guidelines tell us that gloves are not a substitute for thorough hand washing, but we will wear these as instructed.
We ask that clients bring their own face masks although we will provide you with face masks on arrival if necessary. These will be discarded after use.
We will continue with our cleaning measures and revise where necessary.
Each workstation and UV Lamp will be thoroughly cleaned between clients with hospital-grade disinfectants. We have allowed for this time between appointments.
All desktop products will be in drawers to allow for a fast turnaround between clients.
Tissues and hand sanitiser will be available on every desk.
Unfortunately, during this time we will be serving cold refreshments only and no food must be consumed during your appointment.
Please bring minimum belongings to your appointment.
Your coat and bag must be on the back of your chair at all times and we ask you to refrain from having your phone on the desk.
Any clients or staff needing to complete documents on the Ipad must first wipe it with a disinfectant wipe provided.
