COSMETOLOGY

1) Every school shall have and maintain in good working condition appropriate and adequate equipment for its entire student body. The following equipment is the minimum equipment required for a school and, unless otherwise noted, for every 12 students enrolled in a manicuring course:
· 12 manicuring tables with lamps, drawers and chairs/stools
· 12 wet sanitizers
· 1 dry sterilizer
· 1 wet hospital grade sterilizer
.03: Equipment and Hygiene Procedures

(13) All permanent waving equipment, nets, clips, pins, rollers, brushes, combs, clippers, scissors, razors, tweezers, comedon extractors, cape coverings, files, spatulas, applicators and any other item which comes in contact with a patron or model must be thoroughly sanitized after each and every separate use. The use of any implement that cannot be sanitized is prohibited.

(14) After cleansing and sanitizing, all equipment must be kept in sanitary containers, cabinets or sterilizers. Dry sanitizer must be used in drawers.

(17) One of the following methods must be used to sanitize instruments and equipment after use on any patron or model:
(a) Physical Agents.
1. Boiling water at 212°F for 20 minutes.
2. Steaming dry heat.
3. 70% grain or denatured alcohol for at least ten minutes.
4. Ultra-violet rays in an electrical sanitizer.
(b) Chemical Agents.
1. Antiseptics and disinfectants (hospital grade required).
2. Vapors, formalin and steri-dry.
(c) Bleach.
1. Mix one part bleach to ten parts water (e.g., four ounces bleach to 40 ounces water; any stronger could rust metal implement). The method to be used is as follows: Rinse the implements in water first, then immerse the implement in the bleach solution, shake the implement in the bleach solution, repeat the rinse/immersion/shake process described, rinse the implement in water a final time and wipe the implement dry with a clean cloth or paper towel. A hair dryer may be used to ensure that metal implements are dry and less apt to rust. Place implement in a closed cabinet or disinfectant solution. This procedure applies to plastic, metal, steel, or rubber implements. This is the recommended infection control procedure of the Centers for Disease Control regarding all bloodborne pathogens, which includes HIV infection.
