InspectionsAll hairdressers and barbers in Belfast are inspected as part of a risk-based programme undertaken by our staff.
If you choose to register your business with us, you'll receive an inspection when you apply.
This is a general health and safety inspection, in which we would expect to see a health and safety policy and risk assessments focusing on slips and trips, falls from a height, fire and electrical safety, hazardous substances and manual handling.
Hairdressers are particularly at risk of developing dermatitis and it is important that precautions are in place to prevent this.
