Tanning Facility Inspections

MCHD staff conduct tanning facility inspections on new facilities, routine inspections, and compliance inspections. Routine inspections are conducted at least once annually to determine compliance with various provisions including: equipment labeling and general operation; verification of appropriate ultraviolet lamps; accurate equipment timers; clients’ use of protective eye-wear; trained operators on duty; and record-keeping of clients. Inspectors may place embargoes on tanning units observed that present a health hazard, and they may remove the units from service until they are found to be in compliance upon re-inspection.
