Is it possible for service providers to relaunch safely? Skinpossible believes it is! We have equipped all of our staff with personal protective equipment including face-shields that are Health Canada approved as medical devices for Covid-19! Skinpossible wants to help keep everyone safe, so we bought extra!
We are giving them to restaurant workers, hair stylists, hygienists, vets, therapists, beauticians or anyone who can't maintain distance at work!
When social distance isn’t possible how can personal service providers stay safe? By using every precaution possible! If you wear a mask it will help protect others if you are sick, but does little to protect you if someone sick breaths or coughs close to you. Wearing both a mask and a shield along with handwashing is necessary for service providers who get extremely close such as facialists, lash technicians, and hygienists.
For other who can’t maintain distance (ie: hair stylists, therapists, restaurants servers) a face shield has advantages over a mask:
This Health Canada approved face shield extends below the chin, back to the ears and has no gap at the forehead. They are stylish and attractive with a black decal to hide the foam under the plastic. The encouraging words ‘It’s Possible’ are written across the forehead. They match Skinpossible’s uniforms with our website written in very small text and hearts at the temples. These can easily be crossed off with a black permanent marker if you wish.
Here's how to request your free 'It's Possible' face shield:
Hurry! While there is no cost or obligation whatsoever this offer is available while supplies last. After sending us the information itemized above please wait to hear back from us.
Q: If I want to “pay it forward” may I make a donation in exchange for my face shield?
A: This is not expected but we would gratefully accept your donation in any amount you wish to give. All proceeds will be forwarded to the Calgary Food Bank.
Q: Can I pick up a shield for my co-workers or entire staff when I come to pick up my own?
A: We are happy to provide one for everyone, but each person must email us to request their own shield. While on person can pick up all the shields, all workers at the same place of employment must each send their own request in. Why? Because we want to give shields only to those who will wear them. We recognize that some service providers may not want to wear PPE, and our thoughts are that if they will take the time to request a shield they will wear it.
Q: Is this gift available for certain occupations only?
A: These shields are available to any and all service providers who cannot do their job without getting close to a their customers.
Q: How do I know this shield has been approved by Health Canada as a medical device for use in hospitals during Covic 19?
A: The Health Canada authorization number is printed on each shield. It is #314046 and you can see a copy of it Here.
Q: Should personal service providers also wear a mask?
A: It is a personal decision and not ours to make for anyone other than our own staff. We strongly believe that if workers must get close to do their job wearing a face mask only is not enough! Wearing a mask only helps protect others from the person wearing the mask. If you wear a mask it will help protect your customers, but not you. Your customers should be wearing a mask whenever possible. When distance isn’t possible wearing a face shield provides an additional level of safety by putting a physical barrier between you and your customer. Wearing both a mask and a shield along with handwashing will help keep you safe!
