Getting  a visit from the Fraser Health Inspector is always a bit intimidating. At Aru Spa and Salon we take extensive measures to make sure we exceed recommended guidelines. Still there is always that feeling of, “Gulp, I hope he doesn’t find anything wrong with our Hair Salon or Spa”.

Thee risks are numerous from skin infections to the spread of things like Hepatitis. It is important that all of our employees understand the importance of continuous sanitization and cleanliness.

A Visit From Our Fraser Health Inspector

Today our health inspector dropped by unannounced. They always just stop in. We never know when they are going to inspect the Salon and Spa. He introduces himself at the front desk and ask for someone to bring him throughout the facility, all the while writing notes on his pad of paper.

He the proceeds to sit at his computer entering information as his types on his keyboard. He never talks about what he sees or if everything is good, or bad for that matter. Finally we receive the report as he is ready to leave. fortunately for Aru, our hard work pays off and we get a perfect score! Aru Spa and Salon has a hazard rating of ZERO! He has no recommendations for us!

This is always something that makes the entire team at Aru very happy, We all put in a lot of work to ensure public safety and to have it validated in this way always feels nice!
