Sharps need to binned at point of use and be separately stored and discarded in EU compliant sharps bins.

Protective Equipment (PPE) Goggles and eye shields need to be worn when there is a risk of splashing from blood or body fluid Gloves should always be worn when handling sharps contaminated with blood and body fluid


Using our mobile auditing technology, you can monitor compliance rates and staff knowledge of your policies with just a touch of the screen.
