Salon professionals often spend more than 40 hours a week at work and therefore should be knowledgeable of the safety issues present in their work environment. Studies show that those in industrialized nations spend more than 90% of their time indoors. Issues such as indoor air quality, water quality, fire hazards, and exposure to chemicals are present every day in the workplace. In fact, the concentrations of many pollutants indoors exceed those outdoors. Many take for granted that their workplace is safe, not realizing that problems may exist and go unnoticed. It is imperative that salon professionals be aware of their working environment and the possible dangers that exist around them. In addition to health concerns for the occupants of a building, business owners and employers should also be well-versed on environmental issues in the work place.
This course is designed for all salon and spa professionals.
