  • The danger of sharp tools: Hairdressers are required to use and maintain sharp tools such as scissors, razors and hair clippers on a daily basis, representing a significant risk of cuts. The risk of cuts is present when using these tools, but also, and above all, when cleaning them. Damage can include cuts that can become infected if not disinfected, open wounds leading to severe bleeding (vein / aorta), or even amputation. To reduce these risks, take care when using, cleaning and storing sharp tools. Don't work in a hurry. Manage appointments well in advance, and don't rush from one task to another (e.g. haircut + switchboard). In the event of cuts, disinfect immediately.


  • The danger of repetitive manual movements: Hairdressers use scissors every day to cut hair. The use of these scissors requires repetitive finger and hand movements, which are a major cause of musculoskeletal disorders. The risk is present every day for hairdressers. The risk increases with the amount of time the scissors are used. Possible damage includes musculoskeletal disorders in the fingers of the scissor-carrying hand, particularly joint problems (tendonitis). To reduce these risks, it is essential to use good quality equipment: cutting capacity, quality of materials used. These tools must be ergonomically designed so that you can work comfortably for long periods without experiencing pain. Tools must be regularly maintained to preserve their cutting power and reduce unnecessary effort.


  • The danger of skin disorders caused by hair care products: Hairdressers are exposed to skin disorders due to the irritant and allergenic substances contained in hair care products. The proportion of professionals affected is enormous: 10% of occupational allergies in all professions are reported by hairdressers. This makes it the second leading cause of occupational illness in the hairdressing sector. The risk is present when hairdressers use chemical products. From the most to the least aggressive for the skin: relaxers, bleaches, perms, dyes, shampoos. The first observable symptoms are redness on the back of the hands and between the fingers, itching or burning sensations, cracks, crevices and/or desquamation (peeling skin). This can lead to various dermatoses and eczema. These skin problems are the second leading cause of occupational illness in the hairdressing sector. To reduce them, it's essential to consult product data sheets and strictly adhere to the instructions for use, which also specify the damage incurred by each product during handling. Thin, single-use gloves are the best way to avoid direct contact with aggressive chemicals. Apply moisturizing creams regularly to your hands.
