You should always have a timer connected to your tanning bed in order to make sure the bed automatically shuts off when your tanning session is complete. It is also a good idea to have a back-up timer in case the first one malfunctions. If you are to fall asleep in the tanning bed, there could be catastrophic results if the bed does not shut off after the regulated amount of time.
If you are using a tanning bed at a salon, you should set your own personal alarm on a watch or a cell phone in case your bed does not turn off and the salon's employees do not realize you're still in there.
It is also smart for you to play some music or a book on tape in the background to deter you from completely falling asleep in the bed.
