Sharps Disposal

Healthcare workers are aware that the field they are in can lead to exposure to potentially hazardous viruses such as HBV, HCV and HIV. This can happen with accidental needle pricks from syringes, hypodermic needles and other types of sharp medical objects. A good way to avoid this potentially fatal accident is to have an effective way of disposing of these objects. We offer high quality and safe Sharp Disposal containers and accessories so that proper disposal of possibly infected items can be part of your current disposal program.

DID YOU KNOW? The most noteworthy and common pathogens that are of greatest concern to healthcare workers include hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Infections generated through a needlestick — by any of these bloodborne pathogens — can be life-threatening. The National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health (NIOSH) states that many percutaneous injuries result in severe and long-lasting emotional distress, causing some healthcare workers to quit their jobs as a result of the exposure.
