Wirral's tanning shops are all being checked to see that they are not using illegal equipment. So far over half the shops tested are using tubes that are greater power than that allowed.

When the problem is on that scale it appears to me to be indicative that the punishments are insufficient.

I suspect some tanning shop places have little idea of the regs. Seems counterproductive to "tan" your clients too quickly.

Considering Wirral Council banned them in their leisure centres about 8 yrs ago, due to danger levels to health, I would have thought there would have been a follow up to inspect all such places within the borough.

The same way inspections are done with restaurants and various eating places.

You'd be amazed how infrequently a lot of inspections are carried out, once every four years would have been called "frequent" not so long ago even in the food industry.

I don't think sunbed salons are licensed in Wirral unlike some other authorities although the council has an obligation to check them.

When tourism was over-seen by the English Tourist Board,stringent rules meant it was paramount that any eating places were inspected before they could be advertised by any means involving the ETB and regionally . Once the tourism changed e.g. the disbanding of local tourist authorities in about the early 2000's ,maybe a bit later, and went over to Visit England and Trip Advisor etc. ,plus the increase on internet searching , it seemed as if any or all place of eating could be listed, as Wirral Council did on their Visit Wirral page during the Golf Championships of 2006.
I don't believe that all those places that were listed had been inspected, and therefore I assume the standards had been changed or dropped altogether, which I think was not only this area but nationwide.

I'll never understand how getting rid of the ETB came about. "Why fix what wasn't broken" springs to mind.

Anyone who willingly subjects themselves to UV deserves all they get.

At best, identifying themselves as total numpties and developing skin like leather, at worst skin cancer and a painful death.

Inspection is a waste of time. There is no 'safe' level of uv exposure.

Wish Id known that half a century ago when we used to splatter ourselves with olive oil to sun worship at every available opportunity.

As has been said recently, anything is better than nothing, most oils and creams stop some of the harmful rays getting to your skin but don't offer the protection of good suncream.

Nearly 150,000 new incidents of skin cancer in UK every year and increasing.

3,000+ deaths from skin cancer every year in the UK and increasing.

As you get older your skin becomes more vulnerable.
