§ 3555. Restrictions on the use of ultraviolet radiation devices. 1.
No owner, operator, or employee of a tanning facility shall permit the

prescribed by the commissioner, acknowledging that such person has read
the warnings required under subdivision two of section thirty-five
hundred fifty-four of this article and agrees to wear safety goggles
before using an ultraviolet radiation device. Such signed statement of
acknowledgment may be retained by the tanning facility off premises
