Health and safety can easily be missed with having to manage more pressing people issues in the busy hair and beauty environment.

Spectra have years of expertise in dealing with the hair and beauty industry, helping businesses deal with matters ranging from lone working to preparing legally required documentation to carrying out accident investigations.

Some hazards in the salon are less obvious than others. For example:

  • Up to 70 per cent of hairdressers suffer from work-related skin damage such as dermatitis at some point during their career – most cases are absolutely preventable.
  • During and after a clients hair is cut there are small clumps of hair lying around the chair and floor, often presenting a slip hazard if it is not immediately swept up.

Some hazards in the salon are less obvious than others. For example:

  • Salon waste disposal
  • Handling and storing tools and products

Businesses like yours have found that by having Spectra on board, they free themselves from hassles of managing compliance, safe in the knowledge that it is assured.

Clients often also take the HR/employment law services that are available thus saving themselves time and money dealing with, for example, disciplinary and grievance procedures, dismissals without financial risk to the company and putting restrictive covenants in place to limit the possibility of their staff setting up in direct competition.

By giving clients the option to choose from either of the main services, and from a fixed term agreement or just ad hoc projects, Spectra can tailor-make services so that they suit individual company needs, budgets and timeframes.
