To raise the bar on hygiene and safety, Dubai salons have started getting certified health supervisors and trained staff members following a specialised training programme organised by the municipality. A total of 163 employees were qualified as health supervisors after getting specialised training and passing the tests conducted by two certification bodies for this purpose. The training programme was implemented from December 2017 until the end of March this year, the civic body said in a press release.
The Health and Safety Department of Dubai Municipality has also completed training 5,301 employees of men’s salons and women’s beauty centres during the same period. The training workshops were conducted by 72 trainers with specialised scientific competencies, health and safety expertise and speaking skills in a variety of languages that fit the cultural diversity in the work environment. The trainers were from 30 training and health consultancy companies approved by Dubai Municipality.
These trainers conducted the first basic level of training workshops for employees of men’s salons and women’s beauty centres, the municipality said. Reda Salman, director of Health and Safety Department, said the department had approved the basic training initiative and the training of the health supervisors in the salons and the beauty centres.
