Make My Salon Safe...

Dear Legislator,

My health and safety and the health and safety of the clients that I serve is in your hands. Recently, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the Georgia Institute of Technology and the Georgia Concerned Beauty Professionals signed an Alliance to address the significant health and safety concerns that affect me and the clients that I serve. As a Licensed Beauty Professional, I am required by Georgia Law to complete 5 hours of continuing education every other year, of which 3 hours must be in health, safety and sanitation. As a Georgia Licensed Beauty Professional, I am insisting that for the sake of my health and my safety and the health and safety of the clients that I serve, that my 3 hours of health, safety and sanitation continuing education be updated to include information from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and Georgia Institute of Technology.

As a Georgia Licensed Beauty Professional, I am also insisting that my 3 hours of health, safety and sanitation be taught in a classroom environment to assist in my comprehension of the information and to protect and provide accountability to the state of Georgia for my actions. In addition, I am insisting that the 3 hours of health, safety and sanitation be administered at NO COST to me.

I know that as my Legislator, protecting my health and my safety and the health and safety of the citizens of Georgia who visit salons is a duty you are sworn to uphold . Therefore, please support the initiative to reform continuing education for the Licensed Beauty Professional and "Make My Salon Safe". Thank you!
