FT. WAYNE, IN – EYE PRO, Inc., world leader in disposable eye protection for indoor tanning and makers of Ultra Gold WINK-EASE, Lash Room WINK-EASE and WINK-EASE Dark, wants to be sure salons are equipped to help their tanners understand the importance – and the benefits – of wearing proper eye protection when tanning.
Before the holidays and tanning season really get underway, a quick refresher course to help understand WHY eye protection is so important is a great way for salons to get their staff ready. “Some salon staff don’t even wear eye protection,” explains Eye Pro President, Brenda Fishbaugh. “A salon team won’t push eyewear if they don’t believe in it, or understand it’s the federal law for EVERY state, as well as every country.” While Fishbaugh understands it’s a battle for salon operators to educate tanners on the importance of eye protection, she urges them to educate themselves, so that they can then educate tanners. “When a salon guest asks ‘Do I REALLY need to wear eye protection when I tan?’ – that’s the perfect time for staff to say ‘Yes, you do!’ and then explain why wearing eye protection not only prevents potential eye diseases, vision loss, or permanent eye damage, but enhances the tanning experience.”
Eye Pro offers a FREE online eye protection training for salon staff called “Don’t be Slow to Save Your Sight!” The easy-to-take training includes a quick, 20-question quiz to help determine who’s smart about eye protection, with questions ranging from what percentage of tanners seek medical attention after a single session, to the potential eye damage and vision loss, to updates on FDA recommendations and eye protection laws for individual states and countries.
The 30-minute training also includes helpful, usable tanning tips, such as how to combat “raccoon eyes” and the difference between eye protection types. Other information crucial for staff to be reminded of: how to clean and care for goggles and prevent eye infections by providing hygienic disposables – both of which are so important in the current tanning salon environment.
At the end of the training, not only will salon staff find out how they scored, all attendees will receive lots of FREE educational materials for the salon and a personalized certificate to proudly display in the salon verifying their team members are “Eye Protection Experts.”
