San Diego, CA, April 23, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The Body Art Training Group announced that Kathy Hartman, one of its instructors, has been certified by the Department of Health, County of Los Angeles to offer the 8-hour Body Art Health and Safety Training that is required for all body art practitioners working in Los Angeles County.
In her training, Ms. Hartman covers the new Safe Body Art Act, including an overview of rules and regulations, practitioner registration requirements, bloodborne pathogen exposure control training, safe body art practices, permanent body art facility requirements, temporary body art facilities, and enforcement.
Each student who successfully completes the course will receive a certificate for the Body Art Health and Safety Training required by Los Angeles County and a certificate for completing four hours of Bloodborne Pathogens and Infection Control Training.
A special feature of Ms. Hartman’s in-shop training is that it includes a Body Art Shop Safety Plan. This safety plan is completed by the shop owner during the training and has three sections: an Exposure Control Plan (ECP), an Infection Prevention and Control Plan (IPCP), and an Injury and Illness Prevention Plan (IIPP). Having such a safety plan helps owners comply with state and local requirements for body art shops.
Kathy Hartman is an OSHA Authorized General Industry Outreach Trainer and a registered environmental health specialist. She has written and spoken extensively on the topic of body art safety.
Ms. Hartman can be contacted at 1-858-792-1630.
