Sunbed Health & Safety

It is essential that you understand the aspects, possible dangers and safe practice of indoor tanning. Please Read the Following Carefully:

If you suffer from the following, please consult your doctor before using the sunbeds
Ill effects from normal sunbathing, epilepsy, giddiness or fainting, headaches or migraine, a heart condition, hypertension, prickly heat, cold sores, allergies, skin ulcers or taking any form of prescribed drug, ointment/lotion, antibiotic or tranquilliser, diabetic, pregnant or hypersensitive to light?

CAUTION: your skin may be extra sensitive if you have had any of the following skin treatments in the last 24 hours

Please note on regular intervals throughout the year the tanning equipment will be re-tubed. Please take this into account when using the tanning equipment, as the strength of the tubes will be greater. Notices will be displayed at this time. You may wish to reduce the length of time spent using the equipment.

- An indoor tanning system should be treated with the same amount of caution as normal sunlight. It is important to build up your tan gradually, particularly if you have sensitive skin.

- Never repeat tanning treatment if any signs of redness remain from previous sunbathing or tanning.

- Wear goggles or approved protective eyewear (available free from reception). Remove contact lenses, keep eyes closed and avoid looking directly at the light tubes. Do not tamper with or touch the light tubes whilst using the equipment

- Health and Safety information relating to sunbed use is prominently displayed adjacent to the sun units - please read it prior to use.

Pre-Tanning Skin Assessment

All customers must complete a skin assessment before using any tanning equipment to determine skin suitability and for compliance with safe tanning laws.

Skin is broadly classified as being one of six types:

  • Type I – Often burns, rarely tans. Tends to have freckles, red or fair hair, blue or green eyes.
  • Type II – Usually burns, sometimes tans. Tends to have light hair, blue or brown eyes.
  • Type III – Sometimes burns, usually tans. Tends to have brown hair and eyes.
  • Type IV – Rarely burns, often tans. Tends to have dark brown eyes and hair.
  • Type V – Naturally brown skin. Often has brown eyes and hair.
  • Type VI – Naturally brown/black skin. Usually black/brown eyes. Your UV tanning equipment operator should advise you on your skin type and guide you on how many minutes you should limit your session to. The EU Scientific Committee on Consumer Products states that people with skin types I and II should not be advised to use UV tanning equipment. If you have skin types III, IV, V or VI your operator should guide you on how many minutes to limit your session to.
