Preparing to Reopen 

14 May 2020 COVID-19 Update: Qld Government Step 1 Easing of Restrictions
The COVID SAFE checklist for Beauty Therapy was released late yesterday. I have spent my day reviewing, risk assessing, researching and finally coming to a decision on what moving forward onto Step 1 will look like for me and my makeup services. The COVID SAFE checklist was created for a Beauty Therapy Salon environment with individual treatment rooms and has made it hard to apply to the mobile makeup service I provide and miss so much! 
Decision on Reopening:
I have decided to remain closed until I am able to receive my supply of sterilising products to keep you safe and be checklist compliant. Once received I will only be taking appointments for existing and regular clients (eg. Brides for Trials and regular clients for 1 person appointments) in my home Studio. This means I will be able to safely conduct appointments in a compliant environment. At Step 2 every aspect will be reviewed and risk assessed again, this is due to commence on 12 June 2020
Airbrush Makeup: Airbrush Makeup involves the releasing and misting of airbourne pigments onto the skin. It is the airbourne component of this application that is not considered safe in Step 1 of the ease of restrictions in Queensland.

Health Questionnaire & Declaration 

Please complete below:

Prior to every appointment, each person that will have a makeup service MUST complete this online Health Questionnaire. (This includes each member of group bookings). The Questionnaire is to be completed 48hours before your appointment. This includes requesting some of your contact details to be recorded as a Client Register which is a Government required measure to reopen and provide services in the Beauty Industry. Strict privacy will be kept to ensure your details remain private and when they are no longer needed they will be destroyed (required to be kept for 28 days).

To protect myself, my clients and my family (my Studio is at the front of my home) I have had my Fluvax Injection and downloaded the COVIDSAFE app.

Please see below the Health Questionnaire and Declaration for links to Government Support Information.

Health Check to Confirm your appointment: Prior to every appointment each person that will have a makeup service MUST complete my Health Questionnaire and Declaration successfully – this includes each member of group bookings. To be completed 48hours before your appointment – this allows you time to post pone or cancel your appointment if you are unwell and allows me to more effectively manage my appointment bookings and cleaning procedures.

Health is everyone’s responsibility. You must promptly advise me by phone (text message or phone call 0421 194 007) if the following occurs in the time between completing the Health Questionnaire and Declaration and your booked appointment time:

  • If you are unwell with any cold or flu like symptoms regardless of severity

    (I) Proof of negative results will be required to keep your appointment
    (II) If you can not yet provide a result you will be unable to keep your appointment

In the circumstance that you become ill or are issued any orders as stated above after completing the questionnaire and declaration, you will be unable to have any makeup services and unable to be present at a location where makeup services are being conducted (if this is to affect a member of your group booking). Defamation, aggressive or angry behaviour will not be tolerated as a reaction if services are required to refused.

Health Check upon arrival at your appointment: Upon arrival to your appointment you will be asked to sanitise your hands (spray sanitiser is supplied), your contact details will be recorded and your temperature checked and recorded. You will be asked the above health questions again as a confirmation that you are well and will be required to send a text message confirming you have answered truthfully and satisfy the requirements to go ahead with your appointment (text message will be used to maintain a contactless procedure and is equivalent to you signing).

Strict Hygiene measures & PPE

Strict Hygiene and PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) – Step 1 Ease of Restriction for Queensland

The successful completion of the COVID SAFE checklist (signed and dated) is a mandatory requirement of in Step 1 and must be on display in a viewable place.

Gloves: Gloves will be worn for every client and changed between clients using correct removal technique and disposal. I will provide my own tie top plastic waste bag and request it can be disposed of in a bin at the location of your appointment (If this is your home I will hygienically place it in your bin please ensure I can have safe access to this. If this is at a Venue or Accommodation I will hygienically place in their bins provided).

Masks: There are 3 classifications of Face Masks.
Home Made: These masks are not air tight, do not stop droplet transmission but can be worn to help in stopping an infected person spreading the virus.
Surgical: These masks are not air tight, do not stop droplet transmission but can be worn to help in stopping an infected person spreading the virus.
N95/KN95/P2: P2 is the Australia Classification, this is a respirator mask and when worn correctly is fixed to the face. It does restrict air flow and is not recommended for long term wear. They are designed to stop droplets getting to you (stop 94-95% droplets).
If you are required to wear a mask you are not well enough for me to provide a makeup service and you will be asked to cancel or post pone your appointment to a future date when you are well. Please do not confuse this with wearing a mask in a preventative way. I am able to wear a surgical mask at your request as an added safety measure, checklist requirements do not require a mask to be worn as standard practise.

Social Distancing: Social Distancing measures are required. This is a 4m² space per person area. However the Government has advised for Makeup Services only the Makeup Artist and 1 Client can be present in the appointment location at the time of the appointment. Where possible a seperate entrance and exit point should be used to minimise contact with others – this is not possible in my home Studio however client appointments will be spaced a miniumum of 1hour apart to prevent any contact which is acceptable. It will not be possible for group bookings to happen in a time efficient manner. Time between clients is required for a full clean down of every surface and product and will be a minimum of 20minutes. You must attend your appointment by yourself – no guests are permitted as stated by the COVID SAFE checklist.

Quick Reference Points: 

  • Gloves will be worn for each Client (a new set for every Client)
  • Sanitising everytime, before gloves are put on and after correct removal of gloves 
  • Supplying my own waste bag for used gloves and disposing of correctly
  • Clean Brushes to be used for every Client and will be bundled hygenically for each person
  • Disposable items will be be bundled hygiencally for each person
  • All products are required to be decanted onto a stainless steel palette using a stainless steel palette spatula and applied from this hygenic surface. The palette and spatula will be wiped clean and sanitised before every use (including between Clients)
  • Clients are to sanitise their hands before the makeup application can commence and at completion
  • Spray Hand Sanitiser is kept in my Kit at all times for convenience
  • The Health Questionnaire and Declaration must be completed successfully for my services to be available to you
  • If you are unable to complete the Health Questionnaire and Declaration succesfully it is my right to refuse my services
  • If services are refused defamation because of such will not be tolerated

Information Resources from Safe Work Australia, Workplace Health & Safety Queensland and the Australian Government Department of Health will be closely monitored to ensure I am operating in best practise at all times.

Infection Control & Limitation of Services

The successful completion of the COVID SAFE checklist (signed and dated) is a mandatory requirement of in Step 1 and must be on display in a viewable place.

The 3 Steps to cleaning :
Cleaning – 
Sanitising –
Sterilising –

Limitation of Services:
Airbrush Makeup – At this time I am unable to Airbrush, this creates an aerosol based environment and is not deemed safe by the Government in Step 1.
Mobile Makeup Services – Unfortunately it is challenging to apply the COVID SAFE checklist Step 1 requirements for infection control to mobile services. Your health and my health are top prority, due to the added risk for Step 1 mobile makeup services will remain closed. This will be reviewed when the requirements of Step 2 are released.

All recommended measures by Safe Work Australia and the Australian Government Department of Health will be followed and revised regularly to ensure all directives are followed. 

Client Register & Temperature Check

Client Register: It is a Government requirement that contact information on all clients, workers and contractors be kept. I am required to record your Name, Address and Mobile Phone Number and safetly keep this for 28 days. The security of your contact information is paramount, it will be kept securely and not used for any other purpose. When the register is no longer required it will be destroyed.

Temperature Check: It is not a Government requirement but is recommended best practise to temperature check all clients, workers and contractors on arrival (after sanitising) with an infrared thermometer. This temperature will be recorded on the Client Register. You are deemed to have a temperature if you measure 38° or higher. Anyone with a temperature of 38° or above will not be able to receive any makeup services and be asked to leave.
