The training is "face-to-face," says Charles Ditmer, DHEC section manager of the X-Ray and Radiation Inspections and Calibrations Lab.Two companies, Mann UV Technology and The International Smart Tan Network are accepted to train operators.Salons can't state or imply in any ads or signs that the facility is approved by DHEC, can't use the word "safe" or wording implying that the tanning equipment is free of hazards. ("No burning," "no harmful rays," "no adverse effects," "healthy" cannot be used.)

Ditmer added that no such claims could be made by any employee verbally.
As for whether tanning beds are safe, Ditmer says, "without scientific documentation, which we haven't seen, they can't represent it in that manner."
...
DHEC's regulations require operators to "recognize and report any injuries related to UV radiation," which Ditmer explained to mean, "Even if a client reports a slight burn to an operator, they have an obligation report it to us."
But Ditmer couldn't say how many reports the unit has received.He said DHEC has taken enforcement actions against salons, but couldn't name a specific incidence, or what the nature of the enforcement action DHEC takes, referring us to public affairs.Ditmer, head of DHEC's tanning section, also said he didn't know how many tanning salon inspectors DHEC has for the state.
