Disinfecting made easy for the world’s Finest Barbers

the world’s Finest Barbers

In the UK, barbers have been back at work this week, after more than a hundred days away from the chair, they have at last been told they can re-open. But the UK government has issued new regulations and guidelines for the back to work barbers, which include wearing a visor, social distancing measures, and of course maintaining high levels of hygiene, cleanliness, and lots of sanitizing.

Barbers are spending more time than before reassuring clients that they are sterilizing their equipment, tools, and chairs, rails, handles, and salon seating regularly in order for it to be a safe and sterile place for the public to visit. After each service, barbers are investing in total sanitization practices before their next customer is due for their appointment.
Traditionally, Barbicide is one of the most well-known brands used by barbers as a disinfectant solution. It’s that blue solution in a plastic or glass jar usually on the barber’s worktop and it’s used for disinfecting grooming tools including combs, scissors, and clippers. Barbicide was originally invented in 1947 by a man named Maurice King and over the years has been marketed heavily around the US by his brother James. Over seventy years later, the market has become more competitive, and more advanced options have hit the trade.

We spoke to Stefan Michaels who runs FinestBarbers.com, the online wholesaler for the “world’s Finest Barbers”.
Stefan gave us some detail on barber disinfectants,

“Yes, Barbicide is a well known, old brand in the barbering industry, but we decided to go for a British label which is a lot more technologically advanced, using H2O2 and can be used across more of a broader spectrum. The brand we trade is called EndoSan and the company was originally founded over forty years ago in Manchester, UK.

EndoSan is the most powerful, highly effective multi-use disinfectant and virucide we could find. It’s highly effective at killing viruses like COVID-19, even in low concentrations. I’m getting lots of reports from barbers saying regular cleaning products are giving them headaches due to strong fumes, but EndoSan is colorless, odourless and tasteless.

EndoSan is super easy to apply, user-friendly, no need to rinse once sprayed and it’s also fully biodegradable. We explain to our barber partners that this can be safely used to disinfect pretty much anything.

We stock both a 1% solution (green bottle) which is a more general sanitizer which is also labeled suitable for disinfecting hands and skin, as well as a stronger 3% solution (red bottle) which is more ideal to disinfect things like brushes, scissors, combs, but can also be sprayed to disinfect surfaces, chairs, handrails, etc

In the fight against the virus, we decided to give free bottles of EndoSan with our Finest Barbers orders, as well as stocking it in multipacks at trade prices.

Proven more stable than the competition, EndoSan also has more approvals and we think its multipurpose uses make this the best, totally non-corrosive, pH neutral disinfectant we could find for our Finest Barbers. EndoSan is also popularly used across a wide range of other industries, but we wanted to bring this name to market for the hair and beauty wholesale industry.“

When Can You Sue For Getting Cancer?

When Can You Sue For Getting Cancer?

Being diagnosed with cancer can be devastating and affect anyone at any age. Several factors, such as genetics and lifestyle, can cause it. However, cancer can also be caused by the negligence of others. In such an instance, you can sue the people responsible for causing your cancer and claim compensation for the diagnosis and any associated damages.

Determining when and who to sue for getting cancer can be a complex process. So, it’s a wise idea to hire a lawyer to get you through the process and get the compensation you deserve. The attorney can advise you on when, how, and whom to sue for getting cancer.

With that said, here’s when you can sue for getting cancer:

  1. Product Liability 

You can sue for getting cancer from a defective product. For example, in one hair product cancer lawsuit, a claim was made that a hair straightening product was causing uterine cancer in women. The defects in the hair product increase the risk of developing uterine cancer for whoever uses it. If you think you’re in a similar situation, you can sue the manufacturers if a certain product increases your risk of developing cancer.

However, proving your case and claiming compensation can be challenging. In such a case, you must prove the defective product caused your cancer to sue the manufacturer or retailer. You’ll have to request tests on the products to prove the defect and the relationship to cancer development. The product defect has to have caused your cancer diagnosis directly. One example is when the product has excessive amounts of lead. You’ll need to hire experts or resort to government authorities to investigate the product to prove this. This way, you have a piece of solid evidence to sue the product manufacturer.

  • Medical Negligence 

Medical negligence is one of the most common reasons to sue for getting cancer. You could sue for medical malpractice if the doctors, healthcare facility, hospital, or other medical professionals failed to offer the standard of care causing your cancer diagnosis. For example, if the doctor failed to order necessary tests or misdiagnosed your case resulting in cancer progression, you can sue for medical negligence.  

To successfully sue for medical negligence, you must prove that the medical practitioner’s actions directly caused your cancer diagnosis. You must also show that you suffered damage because of the negligent actions of the medical practitioner. By doing so, you can claim compensation for treatment of progressing cancer, lost wages if you cannot work, and pain and suffering.

  • Environmental Factors 

Exposure to environmental pollutants and toxins is a common risk factor for cancer. Prolonged exposure to asbestos at the workplace, radiation, and other chemicals can increase cancer risk. If you can prove your cancer was caused by exposure to a certain environmental toxin like asbestos, consider suing the company or entity responsible for the pollutants.

Suppose a company’s activities produce excessive radiation that affects the population in a specific area and results in cancer. In that case, you can sue that company for exposing you to toxins that caused the development of your cancer.

Like the previous points, you must prove your cancer was directly caused by a specific substance you were exposed to. You’ll also have to show that the exposure was from the negligence of the company or entity you’re suing. Another aspect you must consider is the entity’s knowledge of the potential risks of exposing people to the toxin or substance. Since you’ll also claim that the company or entity was negligent, expose their bad practices that contributed to the development of your cancer.

Additionally, working in a hazardous environment may expose you to substances or toxins that can increase your cancer risk. For instance, if you’re a construction worker with constant exposure to asbestos, you’ll be at risk of developing cancer. Working as a firefighter can also expose you to asbestos and other carcinogenic substances that cause cancer.  

You can sue your employer for getting cancer while working in a hazardous environment. To be successful, you must prove the cancer was caused directly by exposure to a specific chemical or substance at the workplace or in the line of duty. For example, getting cancer from asbestos exposure at a construction site.  

In such a suit, you’ll claim compensation for the medical expenses covering the diagnosis and treatment, lost wages, damages for the pain and suffering caused to you and your family, and other associated costs.  

Conclusion  Getting a cancer diagnosis because of someone else’s negligence can be traumatizing and devastating. However, you can get a little relief through compensation for the medical expenses and other related damages, such as pain and suffering. The process of suing for getting cancer can be complicated, and it’d be best to hire an experienced lawyer to handle the litigation process. An attorney can also advise on the available legal options available and the compensation to seek.
