The owner of a spa in Georgia has issued a recall of her employees uniforms to combat what the company calls “an increased risk of injury from vehicles”.
The National Association of Spa and Body Care Owners issued a statement on Sunday saying the issue was a result of a new driver education program, which has been launched.
“The goal of the program is to reduce the risk of serious injury to people in our community,” the association said.
“We are confident that the program will reduce the frequency of car crashes in our area.”
The statement says the problem has been identified by an outside safety and safety-related firm and the spa has decided to recall all of its spa uniforms.
“While the company has taken proactive measures to mitigate the potential of the increase in vehicle crashes in the area, there are some instances where it has resulted in a crash,” the statement says.
“It is our belief that these accidents will occur more often than they did previously.”
There are currently more than 400,000 registered spa members in Georgia, according to the association.
The spa in Piedmont, Georgia, said it was working with the Georgia Department of Transportation to ensure all of the company’s vehicles were compliant with the recall.
It said it had a limited number of vehicles and would not make any further announcements until all of them had been inspected and repaired.
“Our goal is to get the spa uniforms back in stock,” the spa said.
