    1. Use NZ govt websites for the research activity to get relevant info

    1. Admin bar avatar

      Great tip there at the end!

  7. Admin bar avatar

    1. What a biohazard is
    2. The spread of viral infections through droplets by sneezing, coughing or just by talking.
    3. The three entry points for microorganisms to enter e.g respiratory, broken skin/bloodstream and swallowing.

    1. understanding the risks between salon worker and client
    2. The steps to prevent exposure.
    3. Being careful of whats on my workspace to possibly the exposure of biohazards.

    1. Lower risk of infection, if infected blood comes into contact with skin that is already broken due to a health condition.
    2. Hepatitis B is most likely to be spread through the blood.
    3. The harmful effects biological hazards have to human health e.g Infections, allergies and poison.

    1. Sanitisation/disinfection and GLOVES!
    2. Treating and bodily fluids or blood contact as potentially infectious.
    3. Blood spill procedure

    1. Admin bar avatar

      Spot on, awesome work 🙂

  17. What are three things you’ve absolutely nailed in this Module?
    1. Understanding what a biohazard is.
    2. Understanding how biohazards can get into our bodies.
    3. Completing the task, identifying all the steps in how to deal with a blood spill caused by a cuticle pusher accident.
    What are three things you really need to continue to work on?
    1. Consider my front door entrance to remove all the shoes and tidy up so that future clients feel welcomed and comfortable entering the environment.
    2. Set up a better place to store my tools, create a nice lined drawer area and buy a cuticle oil dropper.
    3. Set up a first aid kit that has everything needed in case of emergencies for the client.
    What are three things that really surprised you?

    3. Not everyone will react to biohazards in the same way.
    What are three things you will never forget?
    1. That some biohazards do not show for a long time after being infected and contagious and that good precautionary nail measures/treatments take this into consideration where you are minimising risk – treat each client as if they could be a carrier of a concerning biohazard to minimise this risk.
    2. Generally, risks are pretty low with great precautionary hygiene practices.
    3. Again – when in doubt, say no.
    What advice would you give to a newbie starting this Module?
    1. Notes, notes, notes. Do the research as very enlightening. Advice I am giving myself, that may interest others, is to make sure I look after my skin as best as possible, so that I minimise having cuts or compromised open skin myself.

      1. Thanks, I saw that last night – yay. 🙂

  18. WHAT ARE 3 THINGS YOU ABSOLUTELY NAILED IN THIS MODULE?
    1. A very clear understanding of exactly how exposed Nail Technicians are/can be during service with clients.
    2. How important it is to maintain a clean, sanitised and disinfected work space for the sake of both the client and self.
    3. Blood spill procedure.

    WHAT 3 THINGS DO YOU REALLY NEED TO CONTINUE TO WORK ON?
    1. Revise and memorise all the different viruses and biohazards that can cause infection.
    2. Ensuring when I start seeing clients that a process is actually implemented with clients on their arrival and client consultation forms are
    kept updated for biohazard management.
    3. Maintain a strict process for biohazard management such as blood spill process and ending the service with a client.

    WHAT ARE 3 THINGS THAT SURPRISED YOU?
    1. How dangerous it is for nail technicians if we don’t use appropriate procedures to protect us against blood spill, infection, and or exposure.
    2. That HIV is also very serious and we could be exposed to it without knowledge therefore we must adhere strictly to our best practice around infections.
    3. That I’ve had so many occasions where I’ve been cut and the technician has continued to work on me without band aiding or disinfecting or applying first aid and that I still had to pay for the service!! There were times I accepted it as part of my nail appointment 😩

    WHAT ARE 3 THINGS YOU WILL NEVER FORGET?
    1. What Hepatitis B, C and HIV actually are, how they’re all diagnosed and what treatment is available for people who have contracted these viruses.
    2. How crucial it is to maintain your integrity when it comes to keeping a sanitised and disinfected work space and that we follow appropriate blood spill procedures for blood or any bodily fluid we may encounter during service.
    3. Consider offering a free service where I may cut a client and draw blood.

    WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO A NEWBIE STARTING THIS MODULE?

    Be very mindful of this content and the importance it has in your overall learning and practice in your salon or business.

    1. Admin bar avatar

      Yesss integrity is EVERYTHING!

  19. What are three things you’ve absolutely nailed in this Module?

    1. I nailed understanding what a biohazard is an organism eg bacteria in which it has an affect on the health of another living organism

    2. I nailed understanding the blood spill procedure, how this is no questions asked NEEDS TO BE DONE AND DONE EFFICIENTLY not only for my safely but my current client and clients to come

    3. I nailed biohazards quiz

    What are three things you really need to continue to work on?
    1. I need to work on the visual impact, and the first thing my clients will see when arriving to get their nails done

    2. I need to work on the salon space. I had already started this i am in the process of picking furniture at the moment

    3. I need to work on what kind of work space will not only work for me but my client

    What are three things that really surprised you?

    1. I was surprised that Hepatitis B,C and HIV can have a difference is hight to low risk when and if contracting. I has just put them all under the same umbrella. I guess its the lack of knowledge that so many of us have.

    2. I was surprised that on something like keys or a water bottle there are biohazards. I guess we all know other people have handled these things also but I have ever put it into perspective.

    3. I was surprised that biohazards can be spread respiratory, broken skin, swallowing. Again I just i guess before now put it into perspective in the line of work.

    What are three things you will never forget?

    1. I will never forget that Hepatitis B is higher risk then HIV as i said I thought the opposite with my lack of knowledge prior to this course

    2. I will never forget to really think about where things have been before i pick them up or touch them. You can never be too careful with disinfecting and sanitising in your every day to day

    3. I will never forget put my health and safety in light also by wearing PPE but if I am doing so to explain to my client why
