Airbrush tanning has emerged as one of the fastest growing segments of the tanning industry. With its popularity comes an increasing need for insurance coverage for airbrush tanning salons and operators. Although airbrush tanning does not have the same hazards as UV indoor tanning, there are a different set of risks involved. Because of skin reactions or privacy issues, insurance specific to airbrush tanning is a must have for any airbrush tanning salon owner. This is where Insurtec steps in. Insurtec offers coverage specific to airbrush tanning along with the rest of your salon. Insurtec can also cover mobile operators of air brush equipment. This means that you are covered if you go to someone's home or business to apply the airbrush tan.
Fainting - It is possible that a customer may feel faint during the service. The technician must be aware of this at all times and be ready to sit the customer down if any signs of dizziness are present. This can arise from a customer standing with locked knees for an extended period of time.
Working Around the Eyes - Working around the eyes with the airbrush could potentially result in damage to the eye from the airbrush itself. When the eyes are closed the customer is more likely to lose their balance, possibly causing an accident.
Poor Application of Solution - Customers are told to exfoliate prior to their visit and the color becomes part of their skin. Therefore it cannot be removed without removing skin. Trying to remove a poor application could result in an even more unsightly condition. If the customer was getting the tan for a special occasion, a liability may arise.
Allergic Reactions - Allergic reactions to DHA, the active ingredient in all self tanners, can occur. Although they rarely result in any more than a minor reaction, they can happen. Also, keep in mind that many people have allergies to latex. One way to avoid this issue is to use polyvinyl gloves during application.
Privacy Issues - Because of the nature of airbrush tanning, liability concerns arise due to the human contact element of the service.
The above list certainly does not include all of the risks associated with airbrush tanning. It does, however, give you an idea of the types of risks that your business may face. A good insurance policy that is designed specifically for airbrush tanning is the best way to prepare your business. Most businesses that have a major claim close their doors, never to be heard from again. With proper insurance, your business will be protected.
