The purpose of the BodySafe program is to ensure safe practices for Personal Service Setting (PSS) owners/operators, which are businesses that provide manicures, pedicures, hairdressing/barbering, aesthetics, electrolysis, piercing, tattooing and mircopigmentation.


Safe practices among PSS prevent the spread of infections, such as:

  • fungal infections
  • bacterial infections

Toronto Public Health is offering two Infection Prevention and Control (IPAC) courses for personal services settings (PSS) owners/operators. In these courses, owners/operators will learn about current IPAC practices and how to protect their clients and themselves from infections.

There are two courses available:

  • IPAC General Concepts and Requirements
  • Sterilization in PSS

You will receive a Certificate of Attendance at the end of each course. Visit Toronto Public Health’s online booking for more details and to register for a course.
