Visiting a beauty clinic should be a pleasant experience, and one that gives you a chance to pamper yourself. It is rare that anyone would have an experience that was less than pleasing in this way, and rarer still that someone would be injured by faulty beauty clinic equipment.
There are various ways in which something like this could potentially happen. For example, all electrical equipment should be checked regularly under the PAT testing laws. This stands for portable appliance testing, and it covers many things that may be used in a beauty clinic. Additionally, all other items of equipment should always be fit for use.
How might you be injured by visiting a beauty salon?
We should make it abundantly clear that the odds of being injured in this situation are very rare indeed. However, as is the case with any visit to any premises or shop, there is always that outside chance something could go wrong.
For example, a massage table could collapse while you are on it, sending you to the floor and hurting you in the process. A faulty trolley may collapse while you are walking past it or sitting nearby, and if hot wax or anything similar is on it, it could splash onto you and potentially burn you. These are just a couple of basic examples – you could be injured in other ways as well if luck is not on your side.
