Covid-19 Policy & Procedures for
Massage Or Knot Wellness Clinic
Our guests’ and staff wellbeing are of the utmost importance to us at Massage Or Knot Wellness Clinic. Since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic we have been working diligently to keep abreast of the guidelines in place to protect the health and safety of our Massage Or Knot Wellness Clinic guests.
A number of strict new hygiene and social distancing measures have been implemented to ensure the safety of our guests and staff at all times.
How we are following this can he found here –
We will adhere to the 5 Steps to Working Safely as set out by the Government & continually monitoring and updating our Risk Assessment in line with HSE Guidelines & The Hair & Beauty Industry.
You will be asked to print off, complete & sign a COVID-19 health check questionnaire prior to your appointment.
In order to comply with the NHS Track & Trace system we will be holding client details, and have them available to share with them if necessary, to help contain the spread of the virus, for 21 days.
Occupancy in the Wellness Clinic
While social distancing remains a top priority; we will ensure our Clinic guests and staff are able to keep a safe distance from each other and will lower the levels of occupancy for the day. Wherever possible, we will schedule appointments whereby guests will not have to cross when entering or leaving the treatment rooms. No magazines or any form of reading will be available at this current situation at the Clinic reception.
Treatments in the Wellness Clinic
Our treatment offering will be temporarily reduced to adhere to Government guidelines. New practices regarding the hygiene and layout of treatment rooms have been rolled out and our therapists have been equipped with the correct and safest level of PPE.
Housekeeping of the Wellness Clinic
The levels of cleanliness in our Wellness Clinic have always been of an incredibly high standard. We are now going one step further to ensure the areas are well sanitised and extra vigilant when cleaning the treatment rooms. In addition, any areas, which are regularly, touched, such as taps, door handles etc. will also be continuously cleaned. All treatment bed linen will be stripped and washed between every treatment and washed at 75 degrees or higher. For extra protection we will be using disposable treatment bed sheets. Massage beds, oil bottles and any equipment used will be sanitised in between every treatment.
All staff have been trained on preparing to reopen inline with Covid-19 guidelines with protection, wellbeing, cleaning and hygiene, social distancing, use of adequate PPE inline with close-contact services and appropriate health and safety levels. All members of spa staff have passed and achieved The Covid-19 Barbicide Hygiene Certificate. This program is designed to present the most current information that is pertinent to the Professional Spa/Beauty Professional.
Risk Assessments have been completed for all areas of the Hotel Bristol business operation prior to sites re-opening and will be reviewed regularly in line with Government & Hair & Beauty Association Guidance updates. Furthermore, Massage Or Knot Wellness Clinic will implement our own due diligence if we feel that additional safety measures need to be put in place.
Operating Procedures and Processes will be amended in-line with risk assessments and government guidance including regular, detailed checks by senior management.
