UASA members in the personal care sector (hair & beauty) are ready to start operating again while fighting the spread of Covid-19.
The personal care industry understands the need to practise social distancing, wear masks, sanitise the working environment, taking temperatures, and the regular washing of hands to ensure their own safety and, more important, that of their clients.
UASA in collaboration with the Employers’ Organization for Hairdressing Cosmetology and Beauty (EOHCB), acting as parties to the Hairdressing Cosmetology and Beauty and Skincare Industry Bargaining Council (HCSBC) submitted a request to Trade and Industry Minister Ebrahim Patel through our federation FEDUSA. We are kindly asking the minister to consider allowing salons and beauty parlours to resume operations under level-3 lockdown.
The industry is under immense pressure with countless job losses and businesses on the brink of collapse.
UASA calls on Minister Patel to meet as soon as possible with the recognised parties to explore possibilities on how the sector can start operating again in line with health and safety measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
A video showcasing the preparedness of the sector bears testimony to the sector’s risk-adjusted strategy commitment to keeping members, staff and clients safe.
