Be Smart With Sharps

Did you know one of the most common ways blood-borne viruses are transmitted is by a used sharp?

Due to this it is important to provide a sharps disposal container in your workplace to keep your staff members and members of the public safe.



Sharps can mean many things including:

  • Needles
  • Syringes
  • Lancets
  • Auto Injectors
  • Scalpels


There is a question that every business considers when they are presented with the idea of implementing sharps disposal at their site, will they be promoting drug abuse to the public?

The reality of this is that within Australia, more than 1.2 million people have diabetes and this number is rising. That means that the amount of people that have to use a needle daily is 6% of Australia’s whole population.
