What are sharps?
Sharps is a broad term covering any sharp implement with pointed edges or sides capable of causing punctures or cuts. While needles are the most common sharps, they can also be syringes, lancets, broken blades, scissors, and even shattered glass or crockery. Safe sharps disposal in Scotland falls under UK health and safety legislation. There is a critical need for responsible handling. Sharps, particularly when contaminated with blood or bodily fluids, are considered biohazards. They need to be treated with extreme caution.
Safe Sharps Removal and Disposal Services
Our employees approach every clearance job with the awareness that discarded sharps might be present. We ensure all technicians wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE). They work diligently to remove hazardous items, ensuring their correct disposal. Sharps are carefully placed within specialist sharps bins designed for the purpose, which are then collected and destroyed at licensed provider locations.
These sharps bins come in various types to suit different environments and purposes. You might recognise the familiar, yellow-lidded containers used for medical sharps like syringes.
As part of our cleaning service, we go the extra mile by thoroughly disinfecting any area contaminated by sharps, making it safe and ready for use.
