“You gotta have face, face, face”… as the late great George Michael once belted out to us all on cassette. Well to prevent copyright infringements we went with face not ’faith’, obviously… and faith wouldn’t really fit the blog too well.

George was absolutely ‘bang on’ when he came up with that one, when times are tough, think to yourself “what would George Michael say…keep the faith!”

You could also smile to yourself in the mirror and think back to that music video on MTV…. what a classic, cow boy boots on, foot tapping against the wall, the coolest leather jacket you’ve ever seen, and as for the mirrored Aviator ‘sunnies’, man that guy was the real deal!

At times like these we all need to keep the faith, these are strange times indeed we all know that, daily government updates on coronavirus developments, and one after another we strive to get back to some kind of normality, although I’m not really too sure what normal is anymore and was normal really ever that normal??

And with this new ‘normal’ we look to bringing a little bit more ‘face’ to the world. If you’ve lost your smile, or you’re complexion has gone a little ‘zombie flesh eating grey and crusty’ or you’ve been frowning too much of the thought of wearing a mask when you visit the shops…. Fear not as you can now get a little help from our friends in the beauty and well-being industry.

That’s right fillers, lifters, scrappers, tuckers … they’re set to make a comeback on Saturday 1st August all being well, it’s long overdue. And to celebrate this we have dedicated a website page just for them, “well close contact services to be precise, which includes hair and other beauty, well-being and generally nice things that make us all happy and ‘keep the faith’ type of services’. Take a look https://beeiit.com/hair-beauty-well-being/

We really like all these close contact services, not only because they make us feel good about ourselves but because, let’s face it, most IF not all do one thing really well, and that’s hygiene. And as we know hygiene and cleanliness is probably the most powerful control, or ‘super power’ we like to call it, we have in this world to protect ourselves and stop this evil virus dweller in its tracks.

The cleaner we are, the more hygiene conscious we are, the more frequent cleaning we do of ‘high touch points’ the safer we are and the less likely we are to catch or spread the virus. And that’s exactly what we mean when we talk about reducing the risk ‘risk control’, ‘risk mitigation’. The more we clean, the more we kill…. the virus!

So you might ask yourself, a sector or industries that ‘eat hygiene for breakfast’, why has it taken so long to consider reopening these businesses?? You could say the government didn’t understand them well enough, or the government didn’t understand the virus well enough or you could say the Government was acting cautiously in our best interests… “Who knows”, but we are not here to debate that conundrum, we’re merely here to celebrate this great news and chuck in some of our advice as good measure.

From 1 August, if prevalence remains around or below current levels, the government has announced that they will enable all close contact services to resume, including any treatments on the face such as eyebrow threading or make-up application, working closely with the sector and public health experts to ensure this can be done as safely as possible and in line with COVID-19 Secure guidelines.

And to help you decide which actions to take, you must carry out an appropriate COVID-19 risk assessment, just as you would for other health and safety related hazards. This risk assessment must be done in consultation with unions or workers. This isn’t a selling ploy although of course it fits in quite nicely, but please visit our homepage to start your risk assessment www.beeiit.com

We always encourage a pragmatic approach to risk mitigation, but we also encourage an ‘out of the box’ way of thinking, as we love to challenge the ‘normal ways of working’, so what we say is;

  • Do more of what you do best ‘hygiene’
  • Think about the wider working environment when it comes to hygiene and cleanliness
  • Health questionnaires for all customers and employees
  • If you use any shared building services you need to also think about what the other occupiers have in place for COVID control
  • Keep treatment times to a minimum, 15 minutes or less is ideal but probably not practical
  • Don’t penalise customers for cancelling or a no show as this will only encourage them to take chances to attend an appointment (i.e. attending when ill)
  • If you can place an adjustable screen between the clients face and yours, a Perspex screen for example will be more effective than a mask, as its impervious to the virus getting through it, or even an adjustable computer or monitor stand
  • Keep the ‘chit chat’ to a minimum
  • Better yet use the appointment to teach the client how to do it the treatment on themselves, use this a training session
