Sharps Disposal Kits
Mainly for use in clinical environments where the use of needles is routine, sharps disposal kits are designed to reduce injury and potential serious infection caused by mishandling of discarded needles and syringes. Not limited to clinical environments however, effective sharps handling and disposal is just as important for dealing with broken windows, bottles and other sharps particularly if contaminated with human blood.
The aim of the RESPONSE® sharps handling system is to remove the need for direct interaction with the potentially contaminated sharp object and provide an effective means to neutralise the hazard prior to disposal. A range of sharps kits are available from single application, suitable for dealing with isolated incidents involving a single syringe to large handling kits which include heavy duty gloves, trigger operated safe hand and larger sharps containers; suitable for larger incidents involving multiple contaminated objects.Buy Online
Biohazard Disposal Kits
Biohazard (or combined) kits offer both body fluid cleanup and sharps disposal equipment in a single product. Designed for environments experiencing a range of incidents which necessitate either protocol. Typically combination kits are useful in elderly and/or mental health care facilities, HM prisons and youth offenders institutes â€“ such environments require maximum flexibility in biohazard handling in addition to the highest standards of safety given the potential for greater risk factors.
Microorganisms may be spread by contact with body fluids of an infected person via a puncture to the skin from contaminated sharps, such as needles, syringes, knives, blades and broken glass. In situations where violent protest and/or vandalism may occur (e.g. custody situations) it is vital to have a broad biohazard response mechanism in place to safeguard the health and safety of employees.Buy Online
