8 Salon and legal requirements How to work safely, effectively and hygienically when colouring and lightening hair (part 1) 1.1. The requirements for preparation of the client for colouring work This area of learning may have been covered in NVQ/ SVQ Level 2. It is necessary to ensure that the minimum standards required for the safety and protection of clients are provided. It is recognised that different salons may have different requirements. Ref: Handout.1.1 State the minimum requirements as: Work station chair to be clean and dry, worktop to be clean and tidy and free from hairs products and equipment on display to be clean and free from dust and debris tools to be cleaned and sterilised before use colouring trolley should be free moving i.e. the wheels are free from hair and debris the colouring trolley to be prepared with all necessary materials Client gowning (suggested protection procedure for colouring and lightening hair) clean colouring gown to be placed on the client and properly secured ensuring the gown completely covers the client s clothing clean waterproof shoulder cape to be placed over the client s shoulders and tied in position clean towel to be placed around the client s shoulders and secured to prevent it from falling off Copyright Habia All rights reserved. Page 5 - Unit - Session 1.

9 disposable colouring cape to be placed over towel if required Remind learners that the client s protective clothing should be replaced immediately if it absorbs any colouring products. Work based learners or learners who work part-time in salons may have other requirements for client preparation. Encourage group discussion to explore the different arrangements. Client Preparation Explain to learners that they must complete the following prior to any colouring or lightening service. ensure the client s clothing is properly protected make sure that the client s skin is protected carry out any necessary tests before the service takes place Remind learners that part of the requirements for colouring and lightening services is to check the client s hair and scalp for contraindications. It is also advisable to: carry out an extensive colour consultation record consultation outcomes and all test results Point out to learners that at the level they are working in the salon, it is common for more junior members of staff to gown the client for colouring and lightening services, but point out that they should still take ultimate responsibility to ensure the client is fully protected.

10 1.2. Expected service times for colouring work Ref: Handout.1.2 Tell learners that they must be able to apply the colour within a commercially viable time to prove competence. Explain that the times relate to service times expected in commercial salons. Tell learners that the range is: permanent colour quasi-permanent colour lighteners toners and that the application techniques are: slicing block colour weaving Explain to learners that the salon staff who apply colour will vary from salon to salon. Some salons will have a dedicated colour technician; others will allow more junior members of staff to apply the colour following the decisions for colour choice and application methods that were made by the senior member of staff. Ask learners why they think that, following guidance and advice for colour choice and application method, the actual colour application may be given to more junior members of staff. Answers should include: the salon is selling time and staff resources Copyright Habia All rights reserved. Page 7 - Unit - Session 1.

11 the hourly costs for a junior member of staff will be much lower than that for an experienced, senior member of staff allowing a junior member of staff to apply colours lets that person gain experience allowing a junior member of staff to apply colours gives the senior member of staff time to provide more technical services Check with the learners the different arrangements for colour application in their salons. Discussion with learners about the time allowed for services is likely to highlight differences among salons. Suggestion Ask learners to visit websites for hair salons to compare the price of colour treatments and services. Ask learners to recap from Level 2 why they think it is important to identify and work within the pre-set service time. Answers should include the following: commercial salons must remain profitable by working to scheduled time allocations for different services while providing an environment that is professional, welcoming and that makes the client feel relaxed and unhurried, even if the hairdresser or barber is under pressure it helps the salon owner/manager to offer a realistic rate of commission to hairdressers and barbers by allocating specific times for a service, an efficient appointments system can be maintained the operation of an efficient appointments system ensures that clients are not kept waiting the best use is made of salon time and successful planning of salon resources can take place Page 8 - Unit - Session 1.

12 1.3 What contact dermatitis is and how to avoid developing it whilst carrying out colouring and lightening services. This area of learning may have been covered in NVQ/ SVQ Level 2 Explain that salon workers are much more likely to develop contact dermatitis than any other group of workers. Tell the learners that contact dermatitis is an inflammatory condition of the skin caused by using hairdressing and barbering substances. Explain that the main causes of dermatitis are wet working and working with chemicals such as colour and lightening products, perm lotions and neutralisers. Explain to the learners there are two types of contact dermatitis: irritant contact dermatitis - caused by having hands in contact with water for long periods allergic contact dermatitis can be caused by the application and removal of skin sensitisers such as hair colourants, perm lotions and neutralisers. It is possible to get one or the other or both. Explain that contact dermatitis is easily preventable and should not be accepted as a normal part of the job. Contact dermatitis is not catching and it cannot be passed from one person to another. Ref: Slide.1.3 & Handout.1.3 Explain to the learners there are five simple steps to follow, emphasise how these steps will help prevent contact dermatitis. Use the handout to explain the five steps. Copyright Habia All rights reserved. Page 9 - Unit - Session 1.

13 Tell learners that further information can be obtained from Health and Safety Executive (HSE) hse.gov.uk/hairdressing 1.4. The range of protective clothing that should be available for clients Tell learners (or remind them if they have covered this area of learning before) that all salons will have different requirements, but that it is important to highlight the minimum standards required for protection of the client. Ref: Handout.1.4 Tell learners that protective clothing and materials used when colouring hair are: towels gowns waterproof gowns shoulder capes barrier cream cotton wool Remind learners that it is important that the client is protected at all times. Emphasise that, if more than one process is being carried out, thorough protection should be maintained at all times The type of personal protective equipment that should be available and used by yourself and why it is important to use PPE This area of work may have been covered at Level 2. However, it is important to remind learners about the importance of using PPE in the salon. Ref: Handout.1.5 Explain to (or remind) learners that the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Regulations stem from the Health & Safety at Work Act and that all workers must comply with the regulations. Page 10 - Unit - Session 1. Copyright Habia All rights reserved.

14 Tell learners that PPE relates to the protective clothing and materials used by workers and that it doesn t include protective garments or materials used for clients. Explain to learners that the regulations state that employers must provide suitable and sufficient protective clothing and materials and that employees must use these when necessary. Emphasise that, as a member of staff in the salon, it is their responsibility to make sure that junior employees who apply colours on their behalf wear proper protective clothing. Discussion Encourage a discussion with learners about why PPE is necessary. Focus on what may happen if hairdressers and barbers don t use the PPE supplied. Ask learners how they would deal with a junior member of staff who repeatedly failed to wear protective gloves when applying colours for them? During the discussion, ensure the following points are made: PPE has the support of law and all workers are required to wear it when necessary PPE is also necessary to protect workers from the risk of harm from chemicals and other, potentially harmful, substances any employee who fails to wear PPE when necessary is exposing himself or herself to the risk of dermatitis or allergy and is in breach of the PPE Regulations junior members of staff should be told about the dangers of failing to wear PPE, the consequences of contracting dermatitis and that they are in breach of the regulations if they fail to use it Stress to learners that all salon workers are required by law to wear and use Personal Protective Equipment when using chemicals in the salon. Copyright Habia All rights reserved. Page 11 - Unit - Session 1.

15 Ref: Research.1a This research is also covered in Unit GH18 Provide colour correction services. Ask learners to research the latest information about the use of PPE (gloves, aprons, dust masks and barrier cream) in the salon. Tell them they can find information by: visiting wholesalers looking on the websites of the suppliers of PPE writing to manufacturers for information about their products and equipment Then ask them to find out what recommendations the Health & Safety Executive makes for the use of PPE in salons. Encourage learners to source their own websites and addresses The Data Protection Act Some aspects of this area of learning are also covered in other units Outline the basic provision of the Act. Ref: Handout.1.6 Tell learners (or remind them if they have covered this area of learning before) that the legislation surrounds any records that are kept by the salon either on record cards or records kept on the computer. Explain that the basis of the Act is that any organisation that holds information about people (staff or clients) must comply with three requirements. Page 12 - Unit - Session 1. Copyright Habia All rights reserved.

16 The organisation must: register with the Information Commissioner s Office ensure that all information is accurate and up-todate and kept secure restrict access to records to authorised people The Act protects people from the possible results of inaccurate or out of date information being held on them this can affect credit rating, medical treatments or employment opportunities. Anyone can ask to see their record and it is the responsibility of the organisation to provide access to it but no-one has the right to see the records relating to another person. Tell learners that it is their direct responsibility to ensure that: clients personal details are not disclosed to an unauthorised person the information is adequate, relevant and not excessive the information is accurate and kept up to date they access the information on the record card for purposes relating only to the business Stress to learners that they have no right to access the information unless it is essential to allow them to provide hairdressing or barbering services to the client and that they must ensure that personal information is not mishandled or misused in any way. Ask learners what they would do if they heard a member of staff passing on confidential information about a client. Answers should include: speak to the member of staff and explain that they are breaking the law. Tell them that all employees have a duty to let the employer know of any breach of confidentiality because the employer ultimately bears the responsibility to comply with the act Copyright Habia All rights reserved. Page 13 - Unit - Session 1.

17 report the incident to the employer provide a verbal warning if this is within the limits of their authority Emphasise to learners that if they are aware of a breach of the Act and take no steps to prevent further breaches then they may be held equally responsible in any claim for compensation. Ref: Research.1b This research is also covered in Unit GH18 Provide colour correction services. Ask learners to contact the Information Commissioner (the old Data Protection Agency) to ask for information about the Data Protection Act in relation to small and medium sized business. Encourage learners to source their own web and postal address, but for those who need support, give the following information: The address for the Information Commissioner s office is: Information Commissioner s Office Wycliffe House Water Lane Wilmslow Cheshire SK9 5AF Further information can be found from the following sites: Page 14 - Unit - Session 1. Copyright Habia All rights reserved.

18 As someone who could be in a more senior position, Level 3 learners may need to be made aware of the scams that are commonplace in the hair industry. Such scams can be where individuals pose as agencies that charge companies for data protection registration The salon s and legal requirements for disposal of waste materials Ref: Handout.1.7 Explain to learners that there are laws and local byelaws that require certain waste to be disposed of in specific ways. For example, sharps are placed into a sharps box which is collected by the local council and disposed of in controlled conditions. Stress that the reason for this is to reduce the risk of accidents and to try to minimise the spread of infection HIV, Hepatitis B and other blood borne viruses. Tell the learners that the waste from colouring and lightening is usually: excess colouring and lightening products must be diluted with cold water before being flushed down the drain used cotton wool, disposable gloves, etc. should be disposed of in accordance with the salon s procedures used towels and gowns should be laundered before use on another client Most salons require that waste such as disposable gloves and used cotton wool is placed into a lidded bin and disposed of in the normal way with other rubbish COSHH Regulations relating to colouring Ref: Handout.1.8 Copyright Habia All rights reserved. Page 15 - Unit - Session 1.

19 Explain (or remind learners if they have covered this aspect of learning before) that COSHH is one of the Regulations that stems from The Health & Safety at Work Act. Tell learners that COSHH stands for: Control of Substances Hazardous to Health and means that there have to be controls over the use of all chemicals and other substances that could cause damage to health or a threat to the safety of the people using them. Discuss the difference between a hazard and a risk: A hazard is something that could be harmful, a risk is when the chance of harm being caused is increased. For example, hair bleach is a hazard because it is a product that could damage the hair or skin. The risk of damage is increased if the bleach is allowed to lie on the scalp. Ask learners to think of other hazards and to identify the circumstances in which the risk of them causing harm is increased. Explain: this process is called risk assessment salon owners must carry out a risk assessment to help them to decide the best way of controlling the substance and, therefore, of reducing the risk When hairdressers or barbers do a risk assessment it can help them to identify the potentially harmful products in the salon and what to do in the case of: accidental spillage ingestion (swallowing) Page 16 - Unit - Session 1. Copyright Habia All rights reserved.

20 entry to the eyes damage to the skin Tell learners that all salon workers must comply with the COSHH requirements to use, handle, store and dispose of substances in accordance with salon policy, manufacturers instructions and local by-laws. Manufacturers also have a duty of care. They must provide instructions relating to COSHH on the use of their products. Tell learners that as more senior members of staff, they may be asked to help less experienced personnel to understand the implications of the regulations. Say that by using the acronym SHUD, it may help them to remember the requirements. Store Handle Use and Dispose of..colouring products Ref: COSHH documentation Have a copy of COSHH documentation that is either provided by the manufacturers, or by you as a training provider for the learners to look at Electricity at Work Regulations and why it is important to check electrical equipment used to aid the colouring and lightening process Some aspects of this area of learning are also covered in other units Ref: Handout.1.9 Copyright Habia All rights reserved. Page 17 - Unit - Session 1.

21 Explain that the purpose of these Regulations is to ensure that electrical equipment is adequately maintained and checked by a qualified person and that a written record of the equipment tests is kept and made available for inspection. Emphasise to learners that it is their responsibility to ensure that any faulty equipment they find in their workplace is removed from use, labelled as faulty and reported to the relevant person. In addition to the requirements of the legislation, explain that the equipment should only be used for its intended purpose and that they should make sure that they know how to use it by reading the manufacturer s instructions or by asking the salon owner or manager. Tell the learners that it is important to visually check if the equipment is safe for use by checking the flex and the plug. Explain that, when they have finished with the equipment they should switch off, isolate it from the power source, allow heated equipment to cool and store it safely away. It is important to recognise that for some Level 3 learners they may themselves be the responsible person in the salon. If the learner is the responsible person, then they must be prepared to make decisions about the faulty equipment that other members of staff have informed them of. Tell them that faulty electrical equipment should be dealt with as follows: ensure labelled faulty electrical equipment is kept in a safe place to await repair or disposal if it can be repaired, a qualified person should repair it if it cannot be repaired, then the equipment should be carefully and safely disposed of Page 18 - Unit - Session 1. Copyright Habia All rights reserved.

22 1. Ask learners why it is important that such legislation exists. 2. Ask learners how the regular checking of electrical equipment is carried out in their own salons. 3. Ask learners how they would recognise if electrical equipment was faulty. 4. Ask learners the routine to be followed in their salons when faulty equipment is found. Answers should include: 1. The legislation is there to protect salon workers and clients. 2. It can be recognised by any of the following: damage to equipment or cables equipment does not work when switched on equipment does not sound right when running equipment has a strange (sometimes fishy ) smell when running equipment keeps cutting out 3. Check how this is done and follow up learners who are in salons where the checking of electrical equipment is not carried out. 4. Check that there are set procedures in the learners salons. Follow up any learners who are unsure what they have to do. Ref: Faulty electrical items Have some small items of electrical equipment available with obvious faults for the learners to look at. For example, loose plug, exposed wires, damaged flex. Copyright Habia All rights reserved. Page 19 - Unit - Session 1.

23 1.10. How the position of the client and yourself can affect the desired outcome and reduce fatigue and the risk of injury and why it is important to position tools for ease of use Explain to learners that it is important that the client, as well as the hairdresser or barber, is positioned correctly if fatigue and the risk of injury are to be minimised. Also, if a hairdresser s or barber s position is correct, a better working position is achieved. This helps the hairdresser or barber to increase speed and become more effective. Ref: Handout.1.9 Use the handout to explain the importance of learners positioning themselves correctly when working on clients. Emphasise that poor posture will lead to muscle fatigue and that this could increase the risk of long term injury to the body. Demonstrate Tell learners that they should stand with legs straight and feet slightly apart to maintain balance and even distribution of weight. Say that they should try to remain relaxed, keep their heads up and avoid stretching or bending. Explain that it is important to ensure that the client s position is correct if the client slouches the hairdresser or barber will have to bend to be able to reach the lower parts of the head also the client will become uncomfortable and tired. Stress that, for colouring and lightening services, the client may have to remain seated for quite a long time so it is necessary that the client is in the correct position with their back placed against the chair for support. Emphasise that the client must be placed correctly at the basins for removal of colouring or lightening products and materials, especially when parts of the hair must remain undisturbed and continue to process and that the client may soon become uncomfortable Page 20 - Unit - Session 1. Copyright Habia All rights reserved.

24 and may fidget and disturb the hair during this important stage. Explain that this can make colour seep onto areas where it shouldn t be and will cause unsatisfactory results. Tell learners that when a hairdresser and barber becomes tired they can lose concentration. This causes them to become slower and less effective. This means that there is less opportunity to build up a good client base and to earn commission. Good positioning allows hairdressers or barbers to work on clients more easily and efficiently. Placing tools for ease of use Explain to learners that tools and equipment should be readily available so that they can provide an efficient method of working throughout the service. If a learner must continually stop work to find something that is needed it will create an impression of inefficiency. Having to stop work while colouring, especially when using bleach, will mean that it takes longer to complete the process and this may cause damage to the hair. Tell learners that all tools should be clean, free of hair, disinfected and/or sterilised and laid out on a clean work surface or trolley. The colouring trolley should be set out so that all materials and tools are in their correct place and are easy to reach. Remind them that it looks very untidy and unprofessional if the trolley is haphazardly prepared. Summary Emphasise to learners that they must position their colouring tools and equipment for ease of use so: that they will be readily available to provide an efficient method of working throughout the service Copyright Habia All rights reserved. Page 21 - Unit - Session 1.

26 Salon and legal requirements How to work safely, effectively and hygienically when colouring and lightening hair (part 1) Learner Check 1. Why should the client s protective clothing be replaced immediately it absorbs any colouring material? 2. How can contact dermatitis be prevented? 3. Why must PPE be worn when working with permanent colours? 4. Does the Data Protection Act relate only to information held on clients? 5. Why must you be careful if sending information about a person over the internet? 6. What is the difference between a risk and a hazard? 7. What is your main responsibility under the Electricity at Work Regulations? 8. How can the client s position in the chair or at the basin affect the outcome of the colour? 9. Why must your tools be positioned correctly? 1. Because it will hold the chemical against the client s skin and clothing causing damage to clothing and possible chemical burns 2. By wearing non-latex disposable gloves 3. To prevent possible harm to yourself 4. It relates to information held on anyone staff or clients 5. Because not all countries have data protection legislation 6. A hazard is something with the potential for harm, a risk is when the chance of harm occurring increases 7. If you identify a faulty piece of electrical equipment you must remove it from use, label it as faulty and report it to the relevant person 8. If the client is positioned uncomfortably they will fidget, this is likely to cause the colour to be deposited at places where it should not be, so causing unsatisfactory results 9. So that you can work more quickly and efficiently throughout the service Copyright Habia All rights reserved. Page 23 - Unit - Session 1.
