here are risks associated with overexposure to ultraviolet light from tanning beds and booths as there are with overexposure to sunlight. Tanning facility staff will advise you about the maximum exposure time for the particular device you will use, the operation of emergency shutoff controls, the requirement for protective eyewear, and the location of personal hygiene facilities. Tanning bed surfaces and protective eyewear must be sanitized between uses. Tanning facilities must allow customers to tan only once within a 24 hour period.
County health departments monitor facility's operation through regular inspections to assure that required sanitary standards are maintained and ensure that employees that assist customers or operate tanning devices are formally trained in the operation and maintenance of those devices. See 64E-17.OO4, F.A.C. County health departments must inspect and approve facilities as a prerequisite to granting an operating license.
