Covid -19 Procedure Policy Beyond Beauty Salon

Everyone of us have been affected by the Covid-19 Coronavirus Pandemic.

For our staff & clients safety, during lockdown we have been busy making our salon Covid safe to
enable us to re-open in a safe and controlled manner, some of the things we are doing to ensure
both staff & clients safety are as follows:-

Phased re-opening on Tuesday 14th July 2020

Phase 1. Manicure, pedicure, waxing, spray tans, massage & sunbed. No head treatments

Phase 2. All other treatments – 15th August 2020

We have carried out risk assessment on all treatments in phase 1 & 2 and we are confident that
we continue to provide these safely. Copy of risk assessment at reception.

All staff have completed and passed the Barbicide Covid-19 Certification and/or the Coronavirus
(Covid-19) Infection Prevention and Control course which is accredited by the Guild of
Professional Beauty Ltd, the UK trade body for our industry. The certificates are available to view
at reception.

Re-design of our reception area to create 2m distancing, we have installed perspex screens on our
reception desk and created a one-way system with separate entrance and exit.

All our nail desks and pedicure stations are located in individual rooms.

Therapists will be assigned a treatment room during their shift.

Our staff will be provided with correct grade face masks/visors, gloves & aprons.

You will have access to soap, water and disposable hand towels. Hand sanitiser will be available
at both entrance and exit of the salon. We will also have hand washing guides at each sink to
ensure correct hand hygiene.

We have increased the frequency of cleaning in the salon including making sure that common
surfaces, toilets, door handles etc are wiped clean with disinfectant products in between each
client.

All tools and equipment will be disinfected or sterilised in line with the specific manufacturers
instructions for your safety.

Wherever possible we will utilise environmentally friendly, single use items and these will be
disposed of safely after use to protect you from cross infection. Files and buffers will be
thoroughly sanitised between each appointment with Isopropyl which is 90% alcohol and at the
end of the therapist shift all tools will be placed in a UV cabinet for sanitisation. Each therapist will
have two sets of tools to enable us to give correct timings for each set to be sanitised by using
Barbicide (10mins) before being used on a client nails. All surface/cleaner disinfectant used will
be tested to BS EN 14476 standard.

We can confirm that the laundering of salon towels and uniforms are a priority using a laundry
cleanser along with detergent.

We will not be undertaking any mobile treatments for the foreseeable future.

Will we not be attending charity/stall events for the foreseeable future.

If any of our therapists feel ill or have symptoms of Covid-19, they will self-isolate immediately and
not come into the salon. We may be able to re-schedule your appointment with another therapist
but with reduced capacity and staff this may mean that the appointment may not be on the same
day and or time. This might also mean that we might have to cancel your appointment at short
notice, we appreciate that this may be inconvenient, but it is done for your own safety.

If you or any of the people you live with feel ill or display and symptoms of Covid-19 – please
advised us as soon as possible and DO NOT COME TO THE SALON FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT.
We will re-schedule your appointment for when you feel better. If any deposits have been paid

Your temperature will be taken on arrival at the salon.

Please use hand sanitiser on arrival.

Please try and arrive on time for your appointment, try not to arrive too early as we may have to
ask you to wait outside or in your car and await our call to ask you to come into the salon. We
have free parking directly behind the salon, through the arch on the right hand side of the salon
(looking at the salon), or directly opposite the salon they are free parking bays for the public to
use. Our appointment times have been modified to allow sufficient time for cleaning/disinfecting
in between clients.

Please come ALONE to your appointment, we will be unable to accommodate friends, family or
dependants due to social distancing requirements.

From the 8th August all clients will need to wear a face mask when entering the salon, other than
where necessary to remove for treatments.

Please wash your hand on arrival at the hand sanitiser station at the reception.

To enable us to adhere to the one way system with separate entrance and exit doors, we will ask
you to pay for your treatment when you arrive, we would prefer no cash payments, payment by
card/contactless up to £45.00 contactless. Re-booking appointments can also be done at this
time. At this time the receptionist will check that we have the correct contact information, name,
address, telephone number & email for Track & Trace.

Track and Trace becomes mandatory from Thursday 24th September 2020. A QR code will be
displayed on the reception should you wish to scan and download onto the NHS Covid-19 App.

DURING/AFTER YOUR TREATMENT


Our therapists understand the importance of hand hygiene and we will ensure that we wash our
hands in accordance with Covid-19 protocol before the start of your treatment.

As always we will try and make your treatment as safe, comfortable and enjoyable as possible. If
you have and concerns about your treatment please let us know and we will do what we can to
satisfy you.

We will not be offering refreshments, magazines or our share a book to keep the risk of infection
to a minimum.

You will be directed to the exit by your therapist when safe to do so, so we have minimal client to
client contact.
Please use the hand sanitiser station at the exit before you leave.

All of these procedures have been implemented for your safety and our staff. We will continue to
take advice from the Government and the NHS regarding safe practice and will amend them as
necessary.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you all back to our Covid-19 secure salon from
the 14th July

Hoping we can get back to doing what we do best with the restraints of the “new normal”
procedure in place. Thank you for your understanding.
