While carrying out their job, hairdressers use a plethora of accessories and tools made of different materials, including scissors, combs, hairbrushes, razors and hair cutting machines, hair winders, soaping brushes, sprayers, hair sprays, toilet water, shampoos, hair strengtheners and colours. Most hairdressers have a broad range of skills, but some others specialise in processes. Hairdressing work requires good physical skills. The OiRA tool for hairdressers deals with general risks with an emphasis on chemical safety and skin protection. This risk assessment contains proposed solutions to reduce or eliminate the risks. All requirements, listed in the OiRA tool, are linked to legislation.
