The Health Unit’s inspection disclosure website includes inspection reports for personal service settings, such as hairdressing and barber shops, tattoo and body piercing studios, manicure/pedicure salons, and other aesthetic services, including home-based and mobile businesses.
Here are some points to consider:
Know what to know
Before your visit, become knowledgeable on the service and the type of equipment that is used. This will help you to think about how equipment is used on you and how it should be cleaned and disinfected.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions
It is your body and your health so you should not be afraid to ask questions. A good spa employee or tattoo artist will gladly answer your questions.
Make a confident decision
If you feel uncomfortable with anything you see or hear, do not be afraid to refuse the service. You have the right to make sure you are a getting clean and safe service.
