FENLANDER: Sunbeds and safety in salons a topic of health and safety forum
STRICTER laws governing the use of sunbeds are one of the important topics that will be tackled at this year’s health and safety forum, which will bring together up to 60 people working in Fenland’s hair and beauty salons.
Other topics to be covered include waxing, spray tanning and nail treatments, as well as staff health and safety.
The forum, an annual event, will be held at Fenland Hall, March, on Monday September 26. It has been organised by Fenland District Council to meet the specific needs of the growing number of hairdressers and beauty salons now operating across the district. There are two free spaces available for each business.
FDC officers will also be asking participants for their ideas on how the council can improve its health and safety services.
Councillor Peter Murphy, FDC’s portfolio holder responsible for environmental health, said: “It is really important that hair and beauty businesses maintain the highest possible health and safety standards. We know that times are hard and we understand the pressures that all businesses are under, so we want to do all we can to help them.

“I hope that as many people as possible will take advantage of the free advice and information that will be available at the forum. It also gives businesses a great opportunity to tell us how we can improve our service to them.”
