The disposal of used sharps must be done using safe practices. Blood borne viruses, needle stick injury, contamination, odour, vapour (virus transmitting) are some of the hazards of an unmanaged waste containment system on site. Used sharps must be disposed of properly, immediately and must be disposed in an Australian Standard Approved sharp container.
ASP Healthcare now supplies standard approved sharp containers. ASP Healthcare supplies from 250ml to 19 Litre Australian Standard Approved Sharps Containers, we do not just manufacture to conform or comply to Australian Standards. Our disposable standard approved sharps containers are independently tested and approved. Look for the Australian Standard approved logo on your containers to ensure that they are actually Standard Approved.
