Safe disposal of sharps in health care is important, especially with the risks of disease transmission. Sharps containers provide solutions for the safe and effective containment and disposal of sharps waste including syringes, infusion sets, hypodermic needles, surgical needles, etc. With increasing attention to occupational safety, the design and construction of sharps containers have been improved. Safety is a priority in the design of sharps disposal containers, which are required to meet satisfactory levels of resistance to puncture, leakage, and penetration. Sharps containers are made from rigid puncture-resistant plastic or metal with leak-resistant sides and bottom, and a tight-fitting, puncture-resistant lid with an opening to accommodate depositing a sharp but not large enough for a hand to enter. The reusability of sharps containers is determined by whether the container is disposable or reusable. The use of reusable sharps containers minimizes the need of dispose of single-use sharps containers, saving money and protecting the environment. While, some high-risk and hazardous sharps wastes are collected using disposable sharps containers.
Since contaminated sharps can threaten life safety, users require sharps containers to have more and better safety features. To meet this need, Amerigo Scientific offers sharps containers in various colors, shapes and sizes with safety and effectiveness.
