Accidents in a hairdressing salon
Both hairdressers and their clients may be at risk from an injury suffered in a hairdressing salon. Hairdressers use styling equipment such as curling tongs and hair straighteners which can be very hot, and if touched, could give a nasty burn. All electrical equipment should be checked regularly to minimize the risks of accidents. There are also risks in hairdressing salons because of the electrical equipment and the proximity of water. Electric shocks can vary in intensity and should be avoided by careful work-practices.
Hairdressers come into contact with dyes, bleach and other chemicals during a day’s work, and if these get onto the skin they can cause dermatitis. Hairdressers use protective gloves to avoid a skin disease such as eczema, but hairdressers can develop a latex allergy if those protective gloves are latex-based. An allergy to latex can cause asthma and other respiratory problems.
Everyone in a hairdressing salon is at risk from a slip, trip or fall because of the possibility of water or another liquid spilled onto the floor, and the hair which could also cause a hazard.
