The Board knows how important hand washing is, especially today, for the protection of the consumer and the licensee.
Refer to the following:
A.A.C. R4-10-112 Infection Control and Safety Standards
(H) Personal Cleanliness
1. A licensee or student shall thoroughly wash his or her hands with soap and warm water or any equally effective cleansing agent immediately before
providing services to each client, before checking a student's work on a client, or after smoking, eating, or using the restroom;
3. A client's skin upon which services will be performed shall be washed with soap and warm water or wiped with disinfectant or waterless hand cleanser
approved for use on skin before a nail technology service, including a pedicure service, is provided.
