How To Train Your Industry To Fight Coronavirus

Coronavirus Outbreak: How Salon Industry Is coping with it

The World Health Organization (WHO), on March 11, 2020, has declared a global pandemic. It is because of the deadly disease- COVID- 19 (Coronavirus) that started in China. 

Corona symptoms include fever, cough, joint pain, and breath shortness. Basically, it affects those who have less immunity to fight with infections or viruses. Covid19 has become the reason for many deaths now.

To date, there are many cases of Coronavirus, deaths, and recovery

This uncertainty has enabled businesses to follow significant safety precautions of safety and hygiene. The one industry which totally relies on physical touch is finding it challenging to cope up with this situation is- Beauty industry or Salons!!

Its job includes most of the acts that demand to touch. Despite many risks, they are trying their best to survive and entertain their customers by maintaining every precautionary measure.

Most of the Salons are taking appropriate actions to assure about the proactive steps for the customer and staff safety.  They are sending emails to their customers regarding the extra sanitation process they are seeking at the Salon.  We can say that they are leveraging their connections to encourage the customers that they are open for business.

Here, in this article, we are enlisting you some of the measures that the Salon industry is practicing handling this crisis. They are providing the guidelines to the staff, Front Desk Staff, and Stylists/Apprentices/Assistants. Check out below:

Guidelines for Staff

* If you are feeling sick with any of the symptoms, like flue, fever, or cold, then it is advised to stay at home.  Keep yourself treated and report back whenever you will feel healthy.

* Wash your hands as much as possible. Use soap to wash your hands for at least 20 seconds, particularly before eating, after going to the bathroom,  after blowing the nose, sneezing, or coughing.  If you are far from soap and water, then use a hand sanitizer with 60% alcohol at least. And, if your hands are visibly dirty then, wash it properly with water and soap.

* Use tissue while coughing and sneezing and throw away the tissue soon after that. Or, sneeze or cough in your elbow.

* Ask before shaking hands, high-fiving, hugging, or another close contact with the customers or staff until you are sure that the other person is allowing you to do it.

* Wear the mask while working with the customers face to face.

* Do not share drinks or food.

Guidelines for Front Desk Staff

* Be careful and conscious of the staff or the customers who are sick.  If you find some member sick, then ask them to go home.  And, if you find some customers seem sick, then ask the manager to look after the situation.  Ask if the customer has the consent in rebooking or rescheduling.

* Sanitize the shared hard switches hourly during the day- Cabinet handles, Doorknobs, Faucet handles, Fridge doors, Telephone handsets, Toilet handles, Washer/dryer button, Light switches and other surfaces that they find are touched by many.

Guidelines for Apprentices/Stylists/Assistants

* Sterilize the shared hard surfaces before the start and end of the day. Disinfect the Salon chairs and other surfaces that the customers touch.

* Sanitize the tools that are shared with the other stylists before starting using them.  Clippers and hair dryers handles are some of them.

* Sanitize the items used regularly for the customers, such as hair clips, combs, and brushes, etc.

* Make the hand sanitizer available to your Salon for the customers and staff.

* Try to maintain the distance between the chairs from one station to another.

Concluding Remarks

Every industry is finding it tough to deal with this tough situation; some are taking precautionary measures, and some have just isolated themselves.

The Salon Industry is giving a try to survive safely by dealing smartly in this outbreak. Above, we have how the Salon can become disinfected with the necessary precautions.

If you are the Salon owner, you can implement them and maintain the flow of your business.  Stay protected!!
