Coronavirus (COVID-19) Infection Prevention & Control Policy
James-Miller Hair Design
All of us have been affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
our priority is to keep you as safe as possible, I have implemented a number of changes which I would like to make you aware of. During the time the salon has been shut, I have completed the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Infection Prevention and Control course which is accredited by the Guild of Professional Beauty Therapists Ltd, the UK trade body for our industry. I have since made a number of changes in the way that we operate that you will notice when you next visit.
If any of our staff feel ill or have symptoms of C0VlD-19, they will self-isolate immediately and not come into the salon. This may mean that we have to cancel your appointment at short notice. we appreciate that this may be inconvenient, but it is done entirely for your own safety. If your appointment is cancelled, you will be able to re-book again.
If you or any of the people you live with feel ill or display any symptoms of C0VlD-19 – please advise us as soon as possible and DO NOT COME TO THE SALON FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT. We have amended our booking terms and conditions and you will not be charged for any appointments which you miss due to illness or self-isolating
When booking appointments we ask that you email or book online if possible.
Visiting the Salon
For your safety and to maintain social distancing, we ask that you attend your appointments on time and wait outside in marked areas to be called. Please do not turn up early for appointments as this may mean that you come into contact with other clients who are just leaving. Please come to the appointment on your own and no shopping or items with you. We ask that you only bring yourself and method of payment/phone
we have increased the frequency of cleaning in the salon including making sure that common surfaces, toilets door handles etc. are wiped clean using disinfectant products between each client and every time the anything is touched or used, we will be cleaning and disaffecting every time.
All tools and equipment will be disinfected or sterilised in line with the specific manufacturers’ instructions for your safety.
We will be using our eco-friendly towels and dispose of correctly. We have brought enough gowns so each time we use one they go straight into the wash on a 60c cycle.. This was the best way we can continue with our ethos and be eco-friendly at the same time as being safe
Upon entry to the salon we have installed hand sanitiser for you to use. Please ensure you do this before entering the salon. And your temperature will be taken upon arrival
We will be providing disposal face masks for you to use or you can bring your own if you prefer. As updated by government guidelines these must be worn at all times in the salon
We will be using a face visor as the government guidelines state us to do.
All disposable items are bagged and safely removed from the treatment area between each client
We have carried out a risk assessment on all treatments and we are confident that we can continue to provide these safely. We have limited certain services for now.
During your treatment
our staff understand the importance of hand hygiene and we will ensure that we wash our hands in according with NHS recommendations before the start of your treatment and if need be during.
We will try to make your treatment as safe, comfortable and enjoyable as possible. If you have any concerns about your treatments, please let us know and we will do what we can to satisfy you.
After the treatment
Methods of payment is either bank transfer into the business bank details can be provided or card payment and cash
All of these procedures have been implemented for your safety and that of our staff. We will continue to take advice from the Government and the NHS regarding safe practice and will amend them as necessary.
Thanks you for your understanding.
