Covid-Conversations: reopening health, hair, exercise, and wellbeing businesses


Fully Booked
  • Time: 10.30 - 11.30


As Boris Johnson announces more details of the Government’s Roadmap to Recovery, the next in our popular series of Covid-Conversations webinars returns to the subject of health and safety. The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has presented many challenges for the workplace, but perhaps none more so than for those providing beauty, personal care, and fitness services. As businesses prepare for reopening, we look at the unique issues facing this sector, and how we can support it in understanding the risks around coronavirus and responding accordingly.

The UK Government has yet to announce any official guidelines for this sector, but as many businesses will be relying on their local Environmental Health Practitioners (EHPs) to lead them through the process of safely reopening, it’s vital that we share as much best practice in this area as possible.  Our panellists will look at ongoing areas of concern. Drawing on their collective experience, they will debate solutions from policy and regulatory perspectives, as well as sharing insights on current issues and offering practical recommendations and guidance on prevention measures.

Our panel includes: Sandra Moore, Technical Director at Hygenisys and a Chartered EHP with over 30 years’ experience within the hospitality, spa, leisure and beauty sectors; and Victor Ktorakis, a Chartered EHP at Enfield London Borough Council, Trustee of the Joint Council of Cosmetic Practitioners (JCCP) and member of the London Special Treatments Group; David Walker, Leisure Manager at ROSPA (The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents), he’s recently worked with Swim England overseeing the development of reopening guidance, he had vast experience across governance and delivery challenges in the leisure sector.  


Taking place on 18 June, this webinar will be facilitated by professionals and expert panellists.
