Make Salons Safe...
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 and the Georgia Institute of Technology signed an Alliance with the Georgia Concerned Beauty Professionals to address the significant health and safety concerns that affect me and the clients that I serve. As a Licensed Beauty Professional, I should be required to complete continuing education every year in health, safety and sanitation. As a Licensed Beauty Professional, I am insisting that my required continuing education hours include health, safety and sanitation information from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and Georgia Institute of Technology. As a Licensed Beauty Professional, I am also insisting that my health, safety and sanitation continuing education be taught in a physical classroom to provide hands-on, applicable instruction and accountability to my state. In addition, I am insisting that these required hours of continuing education in health, safety and sanitation be administered at NO COST to me.
I know that as my Legislator, protecting my health and safety and the health and safety of citizens is your sworn duty. Therefore, I am asking that you support our initiative to reform continuing education for Licensed Beauty Professionals and "Make Salons Safe".
