Chemical Safety

Many products used in hairdressing salons such as perm solutions, hair dyes etc. are classed as hazardous substances. The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (COSHH) requires assessment of all work with hazardous substances. This includes hair preparations, aerosols, shampoos and conditioners as well as cleaning chemicals and disinfectants used on the premises.

PROTECTION FROM THE SPREAD OF DISEASE

pedicure gloves

Pedicure gloves provide protection against the very real possibility of transmitting of any micro-organisms that may be present on the feet of a pedicure client, such as nail fungus spores. It's a very real situation whereby the spores of the fungus may accidentally be transmitted through the use of pedicure instruments on an infected client then accidentally touch the skin of the pedicurist. A pedicure client could have bled when calluses were removed too deeply exposing the nail technition to blood-born pathogens. Naturally, this can be averted if pedicure gloves are used.

A manicure client in a salon may have an injury to the cuticles, or a cut in the nail folds. A hair cutter could have accidentally nicked his client. Customers might have open areas or cracks in their scalps. Crusts, scales, and lice can attach to combs and brushes and easily transmit infection or infestation to the next unwitting patron. Cuts, nicks, and scrapes at the beauty salon or barber shop can lead to problem conditions for both clients and shop operators, including warts, bacterial and fungus infections, and reactions to various products. The worst thing that could happen is if a blood-born pathogen such as AIDS or Hepatitis are transmitted from the client to the nail technition because of a break in the skin. This cross-contamination can be avoided if pedicure gloves or manicure gloves are worn.

The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires any worker at risk of contracting an infection to wear disposable medical gloves. UniSeal(R) disposable medical gloves are manufactured in accordance to the FDA specifications (510-K Certified), USDA guidelines, and the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA).

DERMATITIS

Frequent hand washing and chemical use can lead to skin disorders, of which dermatitis is the most common amongst hairdressers. Dermatitis is a debilitating and unsightly condition of the skin. It is irritating and often painful, it can be seriously disabling and some hairdressers have had to give up the profession because of it.

The law requires employers to protect against the risk of dermatitis. Doing this involves recognizing the early symptoms, recognizing the main causes, taking adequate precautions and instructing and supervising staff. Protection can be by means of barrier creams and/or disposable beauty salon gloves.

GLOVES SELECTION

It is important to select the right type of disposable gloves for each type of use. Disposable Gloves only maintain effective barrier protection as long as they are intact. Traditional vinyl gloves have a tensile strength of about 11 MPa. Newer second and third-generation Flex vinyl gloves are softer and stronger, with a tensile strength of 13-15 MPa. Nitrile gloves are even more durable, with tensile strength typically in the range of 17 to 28 MPa and are recommended in applications where gloves are worn for a longer period of time or exposed to greater stress. Nitrile gloves also have chemical barrier properties that give them an advantage when handling certain chemicals.
