Health Safety & Hygiene

Face Paints & Materials

All face painting products are water based and wash off easily. In the unlikely event of anyone suffering a reaction or irritation from the paints used, I will stop using them immediately and advise the individual to wash them off immediately.

I will not paint anyone who knowingly suffers from a skin allergy of any kind, nor will I paint over open cuts/sores or anyone with conjunctivitis.

I take extra care when painting near eyes and the paints will never be put directly into the eyes. However, in the unlikely event of this happening (i.e. the child moves suddenly) the paints will not be harmful.

Supervision

Supervision of all games is paramount and parental assistance is often required. The safe removal of burst balloons is monitored as well as wet or slippery floors.

Equipment

All equipment used is specifically targeted to the relevant age group.

Soft play mats are used for both babies and toddlers.

You should be aware that Health and Safety Regulations require a responsible adult to be present throughout my performance.

Hygiene

Young children are quite vulnerable to bacteria that can cause food poisoning. So it’s very important to store, prepare and cook food safely and to keep kitchens clean.

All fruits and vegetables are washed before use. No raw eggs are used as these may contain Salmonella bacteria, which may cause food poisoning. We avoid any foods, which may contain uncooked raw egg i.e. mayonnaise. When re-heating food we ensure that it is piping hot all the way through, and allowed to cool slightly before serving.

All food will be served at the appropriate temperatures.

There will be no tooth picks served with food to children under 5 years of age.

There will be written notices on any foods containing nuts.

If someone in your family suffers from hayfever, asthma, eczema or any food allergy it is advisable that you let us know in advance of our food preparation for your event.
