Sharps

The disposal of sharps and how you approach it says a great deal about how seriously your organisation takes the health and safety of your staff and the general public. It is vitally important to ensure that you’re dealing with sharps disposal in a safe manner that eliminates the risks associated with the handling of sharps.

What Are Sharps?

“Sharps” is the medical term used for any device that has a sharp point or edges that can puncture the skin. This includes needles, syringes, scalpels, razor blades, phials, glass and lancets. If you use anything with a sharp edge that can cut the skin then it needs to be treated as sharps waste and safely managed.
