Preventing Needlestick Injuries

We are committed to providing safer sharps containment products, and preventing associated needlestick injuries. The Sharpsafe® range of sharps containers also provides key features to help this commitment:

  • Sharpsafe® Near Patient Sharps disposal (NPSD) is a strategy for reducing needlestick injures which features sharps containment products, including trays, designed specifically to be taken to the patient. Sharps are disposed of at the ‘point of use’, eliminating any possibilites of injury associated with the movement of open needles, which inflict a huge additional cost on healthcare services each year.
  • Protected Access – the Sharpsafe® protected access range permits easy and safe disposal of sharps waste via an integral barrel shaped rotating aperture, which ensures hands are prevented from entering the container. The range is intended for use primarily for use in paediatric & public access areas such as outpatients and emergency departments where children are present.
