Introduction

ACCIDENTS BY THEIR NATURE ARE NEVER PLANNED, BUT YOUR RESPONSE SHOULD BE. Prevention is the key, without a plan in place, your chances of reacting correctly in an emergency are slim, improper or no actions can actually make the original situation worse. WHERE TO START I would recommend looking at your salon, with an eye towards safety and preventing as many accidents as possible. HOUSEKEEPING; Keep hallways clear Exits well marked if you have a large salon emergency exit plans should be posted. Employees should know which room are occupied at all times and have a way to alert tanners if the rooms need to be cleared quickly. Storage of chemicals; store below eyelevel have MSDS sheets on hand. WEATHER; Know the safe areas within the salon for severe weather tornado etc. How to approach tanners if the salon loses electricity(how they will be compensation if any will be offered). With winter coming snow & ice removal program. ROBBERY; We are easy targets because of our late hours and usually only one person closing. ...read more.

Breaker boxes- all circuits shall be marked and each employee should know how to shut down a breaker. Remember when cleaning that water and electricity don not mix. FIRE PREVENTION; A fire needs three things, oxygen-fuel-ignition source. If we don't put them together we won't have a fire. On the other hand if we have a fire we need only remove one these elements the fire will go out. Dryers are one of the biggest culprits in salon fires. This is because of lack of proper maintenance, cleaning the lint trap after every use will eliminate most of causes of these fires, but how many of you actually clean the duct work from the dryer to the outside? Smoke alarms properly working including a scheduled battery change. Fire extinguishers; Extinguishers must fit the fire; * Class A Fires - fires in ordinary combustible materials, such as wood, cloth, paper. * Class B Fires - fires in flammable liquids, oils, greases, tars, oil based paints, and flammable gases. * Class C Fires - fire involving energized electrical equipment. ...read more.

Conclusion

* Your extinguisher is rated for the type of fire you are fighting, and is in good working order. * You are trained to use the extinguisher and know you can operate it effectively. If you have the slightest doubt abiut whether or not to fight the fire-DON'T! Instead, get out and close the door behind you. When not to fight a fire. There are times when you should not fight a fire with a portable fire extinguisher: * If the fire is spreading beyond the immediate area where it started, or is already a large fire. * If the fire could block your escape route. * If you are unsure how to properly use the extinguisher. * If you are in doubt whether the extinguisher is proper for the fire type at hand. If even one of these conditions is true, leave immediately, close off the area, and leave the fire to the Fire Department. Call your local Fire Department for a safety inspection to identify hazards within the salon. They might even be able to put on a training class for your salon, fire extinguishers, CPR, first aid. See if you can invite your clients for the training. What a great way to be involved with community safety. ...read more.
