Sunbed salons breaking the law

Tough laws introduced earlier this year mean it is a criminal offence to allow anyone under the age of 18 onto a sunbed and salons are obliged to check customers ID before allowing them access to the beds.    

It has emerged from recent BBC investigations that many sunbed salons are breaking the law by failing to check the age of the customers that walk in to the shop.

It has emerged from recent BBC investigations that many sunbed salons are breaking the law by failing to check the age of the customers that walk in to the shop.

Alongside the age requirement, many sunbed salons are failing to warn customers of the need to wear eye protection and of the dangers of over exposure to the UV rays given by the use of sunbeds.  

Young skin is more vulnerable than that of an adult and it is vital that minors are not exposed to the rays produced by sunbeds.

Equally, it is just as vital that adults are not overexposed to such rays and that they are fully aware of the warnings and risks associated with using sunbeds.
