Hi Christianne, We would need a little more info on the type of business, salon or mobile etc? But a really good general resource for basic health and safety info is An Introductory Guide the Business this publication also has lots of useful info for setting up a new business. The cost of membership for the CThA is £58, however there is a graduate discount making it only £38. Which is fantastic value. We have team of professionals on hand ready to answer your questions, be it about health and safety or any aspect of your business. As a member you would also get a discount on insurance with Holistic Insurance Services that covers a comprehensive list of therapies for only £44 with a limit of indemnity £ 5,000,000 malpractice public & professional liability for any one claim. However the CThA would recommend you have insurance and to be a member it is requirement. It needs to cover all the treatments you might offer to a minimum limit of indemnity £2,000,000 malpractice public & professional liability for any one claim. Hope all of this helps

Hi Christianne, Another source of information for Health and Safety issues and setting up a business is available from Business Link. They are supported by the government and most of their services are free. They are a good support service. Kind regards, Elizabeth Hughes
