Cosmetic Claims - Making an accident claim
Nail bars, hairdressers, beauty salons. They are all institutions which are thought of as arenas of relaxation and pampering. However, those services provided can commonly use potentially harmful chemicals and machinery. Bleaching, perming, waxing, electrolysis, eyelash extensions and nails are all services which require skill from the beauty technician.
Those that provide services, like those detailed above, are duty bound by legal requirements, including those provided by:
- The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974
- Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 - COSHH
Employees of salons are required to take reasonable care for the health and safety of themselves and of other persons who may be affected by their acts or omissions at work. They also have to follow certain regulations when dealing with substances such as Acetone, Hair Dye, adhesives and perming solutions.
Whilst most beauty technicians are highly responsible and stick to strict procedures to ensure the safety of their clients, if a beauty technician fails to exercise reasonable skill or care whilst providing a service and as a result you sustain injury we could be able to help you pursue a claim for compensation against them.
