It's free to register a hairdressing or barber business with us.


All 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's important that precautions are in place to prevent this.


If you have any queries or complaints about the inspection or the registration process, or to find out if a hairdressers is registered, please contact us.
