If you intend to operate premises where skin penetration procedures occur, compliance with these guidelines will assist you in meeting your general duty to take all reasonable steps to prevent or minimise any harm to public health. Skin penetration procedures include:
- body piercing
- other hair removal or beauty therapies undertaken.
It is essential that proprietors and staff be fully aware of the potential dangers of their procedures and understand the precautions that need to be taken to minimise the likelihood of infection or spread of disease.
