This unit is very important for your working day and focuses on the wellbeing of the stylist, clients, colleagues and all other visitors to the salon. It is about how you can help to make your workplace a safe, secure and healthy place for everyone.

You must consider the health and safety of the client every time you carry out a treatment in whichever unit you are being assessed. Whether in the workplace or college/training institution, you have a responsibility to follow health and safety legislation. To help you, the most important aspects of health and safety laws are explained in this unit. If you ignore health and safety procedures when carrying out an assessment or treatment, at best the assessment cannot be competent, at worst your actions could result in injury or damage, for which you may be legally responsible.

What you will learn:
• Identify the hazards and evaluate the risks in your workplace G1.1
