New Practices for a New World
This Safety Training program is meant to be a comprehensive review of safety awareness and protocols for all who provide beauty industry personal services. From Cosmetology or Barbering licensed practitioners, as well as those commonly found partner service providers such as Makeup Artists, Spray Tan Artists, Hair Removal Specialists and others…to body workers such as Massage Therapists, Energy Workers and more. If you provide a personal service to your clients, you will benefit from this course.
Module 1 Safety is Everything – Introduction and Course Rationale – We need more than the minimum safety training required for licensing; especially in the current times.
Module 2 Work Practices and Engineering Controls – Working safely has two elements that need your attention and constant review. Am I doing things in the safest manner? Do I have everything in place to protect my clients, my staff and myself?
Module 3 Infection Control – It’s a whole new world and our protocols need refreshing. State Boards of Cosmetology or Barbering and the other Boards that regulate Massage Therapy, Electrology and other companion services set up minimum standards written in different times and that vary widely from state to state. It’s up to the professional to supplement those minimums with practical working standards that keep everybody safe.
Module 4 Proper Use of PPE – Using protective equipment is mandated by Federal law though OSHA in every state in the U.S. You must know and use PPE correctly. In the past it was not so vital to understand the nuances of proper fit, wear and use as it is today.
Module 5 Client Management – When you set up a new way of working, you will have some push-back from clients. We discuss effective techniques for making rules that suit your salon culture and implementing compliance.
Module 6 Safe Salon Components – Implementing new safety practices can be overwhelming. We’ve broken it down into three components that can help you develop your concept of a “Safe Salon,” a “Safe Spa” and so forth.

Taking this certification course was perfectly timed. I will be returning to the salon in a week after being out for 8+ weeks due to COVID-19. It reminded me of the importance of cleaning, disinfecting and sanitizing, but on an elevated level. There has to be more self care as well. Very helpful ideas re: how to make the client feel safe in the salon, at ease that you are concerned for their well being as well as your own. I'll be purchasing an autoclave.
Jessica, thanks for your input. So glad you found the course timely.

Ladies and gentlemen- I highly encourage you to take this course, I can't imagine there being a more thorough course out there‼️ honestly I've been in the business for approximately thirty years and I learned A LOT‼️ Also, and this is key, it refreshed and enhanced the knowledge I already had. Embarrassed to admit, I got a little lazy in some areas so this course really reminded me how important it is to always be ALWAYS be mindful of our practices. If you're anything like me you've gotten a little lackadaisical☮️
Thanks so much for the feedback, Kris....we learned a thing or two, also!

You both have covered every who, what, when, where and why. I feel this entire course has more than most pros would expect. Theyll be completely blown away.
