Coun­cil car­ries out sweep of sunbed premises in UV check

The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - NEWS -

Aberdeen­shire Coun­cil’s en­vi­ron­men­tal health ser­vice has car­ried out checks on sunbed busi­nesses across the area to en­sure their equip­ment is pro­tect­ing cus­tomers from the harm­ful ef­fects of UV ra­di­a­tion.

Of the 28 es­tab­lish­ments vis­ited by in­spec­tors, 17 (61%) were found to be fully com­pli­ant with the reg­u­la­tions.

One en­force­ment no­tice was served on a busi­ness due to the lack of main­te­nance of tan­ning equip­ment.

En­vi­ron­men­tal health of­fi­cers worked with the Sunbed As­so­ci­a­tion, which pro­vided UV so­lar me­ters so they could test the out­put from tan­ning tubes.
