The safest and most environmentally responsible sharps management system

SAFETY

Designed in collaboration with clinicians, the Sharpsmart has 13 unique safety features which protect staff and patients in the handling and disposal of sharps waste; with global recognition in peer review journals, it is regarded as the safest sharps containment system in the world. 

IMMEDIATE COST REDUCTION

Dramatically reduced costs by customised scheduling, reduction in needlestick injury management, larger container options for volume efficiencies, and eliminating the need to purchase and dispose of single-use containers. 

POINT OF USE DISPOSAL

Save time and labour and minimise infection transfer risk by disposing and segregating sharps waste at point of generation. Daniels range of accessories include wall mounted or mobile solutions to ensure safer handling at point of care. 

LEAKPROOF AND TAMPERPROOF

Anti-tamper mechanism and odour lock seals ensure contents are sealed from spillage and unauthorised access. The Sharpsmart containers' robust build makes them inpenetrable from protruding needles. 

REUSABLE AND ECO FRIENDLY

Choosing reusable collectors instead of disposable dramatically reduces the volume of plastic and cardboard being sent to landfill

SPACE OPTIMISATION

Daniels mounting and movement accessories are engineered to optimise space, overcome logistical challenges, provide bulk movement and storage of sharps collectors, and enable point-of-use disposal without the collectors ever touching the ground. 

 

Summary of the risks associated with managing Sharps Waste

 

OHS threats for staff

  • Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 62-88% of all sharps injuries can be prevented by the use of safer medical devices.
  • Sharps can be contaminated with differed micro-organisms and can be contaminated with blood borne viruses such as Human Immunodeficiency Viruses (HIV) and Hepatitis B and C, and pose a risk of infection or injury if they penetrate the skin. 

 

Non-compliance with regulations and cost overruns

  • Fears of HIV and other infections have led many healthcare workers to pursue legal action for compensation for a disease acquired at work.
  • Even in cases where diseases have not been transmitted, healthcare workers are successfully suing for compensation for the emotional distress experienced while waiting for test results.
  • One study found the cost to an average hospital of sharps injuries was $25,000 per year.
