Sharpsafe® - a range of containers for the safe disposal of clinical sharps which have evolved in line with healthcare and legislative infection control requirement

Sharpsafe® is a sharps management system that incorporates practice methodology designed to reduce needlestick injuries and deliver safe and effective management of sharps waste in accordance with international regulations.

Near Patient Sharps Disposal

Sharpsafe® Near Patient Sharps disposal (NPSD) is a strategy for reducing needlestick injures which features sharps containment products designed specifically to be taken to the patient.

Sharps are disposed of at the ‘point of use’ thus eliminating many of the opportunities for needlestick injuries, which inflict a huge additional cost on healthcare services each year.

Protected Access – the Sharpsafe® Protected 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.
