Health & Sanitation information for salons and spas

By far one of the most asked questions when opening a salon and spa in Saskatchewan is: What are the rules I need to follow when opening a salon or spa in Saskatchewan?

There is no easy answer to this one.  In fact, it is actually quite confusing.

Businesses have been receiving conflicting information as to what you need to follow or don’t follow.  Part of the problem that I am seeing is that the rules aren’t defined properly. Especially for those who work from home.

I have found some information and I am happy to share it!

Why should we put spa & salon sanitation disinfection and sterilization at the top of our continuing education? Public health and safety is the top priority of our job and is fundamentally the largest aspect of our work. Anyone who has basic training can provide a service, or apply a set of acrylic or gel nails but if you are using unclean implements or practices those services can cause an infection or worse death. It is our obligation to educate our clients so they know that we have the highest standards when it comes to the cleanliness of our work. To do that we must educate ourselves and the clients to follow the standards when it comes to sanitation disinfection and sterilization.

“Sanitation and infection control are some of the first things we learn in beauty school, and for good reason! It is crucial to have an understanding of the different kinds of infections you may come across, in order to protect yourself and the client. Clients rely on our knowledge and professionalism and trust us with their health, so we must abide by the law by giving them the best treatment without taking shortcuts.”- Dermascope ( by  Dasha Saian, L.E.)
