Hair, Nails and Beauty Health & Safety Cheat Sheet

Hairdressers and beauty therapists use a variety of chemicals during their typical, day-to-day activities. And in many cases, these chemicals can be hazardous to health.

We’ve pulled together this simple cheat sheet to help hairdressers, nail technicians and beauty therapists to comply with Health & Safety laws, particularly obligations under the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH) 2002.

Some of the key areas covered within the guide include:

  • Risk and COSHH Assessments
  • Common processes and equipment to assess
  • Acid/alkaline perms, shampoos and conditioners
  • Hair dye and colours and hair spray
  • Nail Products
  • Eyelash extension safety
