Minnesota Hair Braiding Registration License is the key to a Natural Hair Braider Board.
I want to explain more on how the Minnesota Hair Braider Registration Licensees “simple hair devices” are being manipulated into being in the Board of Cosmetology favor through legal cases brought on by the Institute for Justice.
Why should we care? Because it Black Women #AmeicanDOS who bare the bottom of the barrel to healthcare and HIV and HPV infections. However most don’t know how they contracted the virus.
Gives the Board the authority to make rules and change the definition at will for “Simple Braiding Devices” it reads:
“Hair Braiding, Simple Braiding Devices, Hair Braiding Services, and Hair Braiding are defined are to be defined in Minn. R 2642.100 (which was later repealed and renumbered to Minn.R 2105) and Hair Braiding, Hair Braiding Services and Hair Braiders are to be construed as exempt from Minn. R 2100(2003), 2646(2003) and 2644(2003).
This gives the Board the authority to overwriting the definitions and rules for Hair Braiding, Simple Braiding Devices, and Hair Braiding Services.
But grants exemptions ONLY to Hair Braiding, Hair Braiding Services, and Hair Braiders.
Therefore, allowing the Boards total control over Simple Braiding Devices which includes the ‘needle’.

💉💉Sharps Injury Log🦠
In addition to, the 1904 Recordkeeping Requirements, all percuta- neous injuries from contaminated sharps are also recorded in a Sharps Injury Log.
All incidences must include at least:
date of the injury, the type, and brand of the device involved (syringe, suture needle) department or work area where the incident occurred an explanation of how the incident occurred.
This log is reviewed as part of the annual program evaluation and maintained for at least five years following the end of the calendar year covered.
If a copy is requested by anyone, it must have any personal identifiers removed from the report.
As you can see, the OSHA Sharps Log does not as for the employees/independent contractors or clients name or information, so this is where the necessary modifications can be places.
Thanks for your attention.
