Spot in­spec­tion for spa and ser­vices pro­posed

Sun.Star Baguio - - TOP STORIES -

BAGUIO City Coun­cilor Elaine Sem­brano pro­posed through a res­o­lu­tion for the Health Ser­vices Of­fice (HSO) to con­duct reg­u­lar spot checks on spa, mas­sage par­lors and nail clean­ing ser­vices.

This en­sures the ster­il­iza­tion and clean­ing of ma­te­ri­als di­rectly ap­plied or in con­tact with cus­tomers, coun­cilor Sem­brano said.

Af­ter such ser­vices, body flu­ids may find their way through shared ma­te­ri­als to clients’ items which is a breach of san­i­ta­tion, of un­known con­se­quences to their health.

“As a mat­ter of pub­lic health con­cern, proper hy­giene and clean­ing or ster­il­iza­tion of things in the con­duct of mas­sage and nail clean­ing ser-

vices must be en­sured to pro­tect clients from be­ing un­know­ingly ex­posed to pos­si­ble health haz­ards,” the lady coun­cilor stated in the pro­posal.

Sem­brano added it is the gov­ern­ment’s re­spon­si­bil­ity to pro­tect cit­i­zens from act and prac­tices that com­pro­mise their health, and en­sure that the con­duct of busi­ness ac­tiv­i­ties in ac­cor­dance to stan­dards pro­vided for by law, she added.

A re­port from the HSO within 30 days is ex­pected, the pro­posal also states. The pro­posal was re­ferred to the proper com­mit­tee for study. Julie Fianza
