Spot inspection for spa and services proposed
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
