Skin Penetration Procedures
Premises where hairdressing and skin penetration procedures are carried out are regularly inspected by council's Environmental Health Officers.
Procedures performed at these premises include:
- body piercing (including ear piercing)
- beauty therapy (eg. cutting of cuticles and skin wicks, removal of dead skin and black head extraction)
- manicure (including acrylic and gel nails)
- any other activity which includes skin penetration.
Premises are checked for compliance with public health legislation and associated codes and guidelines that deal with issues such as cleanliness, defective construction, sterilisation of equipment and usage practices and personal hygiene of staff.
All of these premises are required to be registered with the Local Council.
