Abstract:
For the purposes of this guideline, skin penetration practices may include any process, whether intentionally or otherwise, that involves the shaving, piercing, cutting, puncturing or tearing of the skin or mucous membrane. It is essential that proprietors and staff be fully aware of the potential dangers of their procedures and understand the precautions that need to be taken to minimise the likelihood of infection or spread of disease.
