NHBF releases ‘Back to business’ guidelines
Following the publication of the Government’s COVID-19 Recovery Strategy, the National Hair & Beauty Federation has released sector-specific ‘Back to business’ guidelines for hair and beauty salons and barbershops. They can be found here.
What’s In The Guides
The guide will cover how business owners can recover after the Coronavirus lockdown, what safety precautions they will need to take once operating, and how to take financial control of their business. The NHBF ‘Back to Business’ Guidelines include info on Before Reopening, Health and safety when you reopen, Home Appointments, Chair space and room renters, and plenty of additional resources including signage about hygiene and social distancing.
Supporting The Industry
Not only is the need for specific guidance important to getting the hair and beauty industry back on track, but these guidelines are crucial to support the NHBF’s conversations with government to show that the industry can work safely, and not delay when salons and barbershops can return to work.
NHBF chief executive Hilary Hall says, “We strongly believe there is a need for sector-specific guidance for hair, beauty and barbering. We have worked with Members, our health and safety team and other industry bodies to develop robust guidelines that show salons and barbershops can operate safely when the time comes to re-open. These guidelines have been widely shared with our government contacts. They will also help salons and barbershops make full use of the time available to prepare for reopening.”
The guide is available at NHBF here.
