Company Overview


Sharpsmart entered the UK healthcare market in 2000 as the safe clinical alternative for sharps and clinical waste management. Challenging the long-instilled practices of clinical waste being managed as a back-of-dock service with no infection risk considerations, Sharpsmart ushered in a new standard of risk prevention by putting safety, intelligent movement and clinical design at the forefront of its offensive and infectious waste management practices.

The most recent blood exposure survey estimates that each year 100,000 needlestick and other sharps related injuries are sustained by healthcare personnel in the United Kingdom. As a safety-focused company, we are passionate about reducing this number. With safety as our primary driver, Sharpsmart has invested millions of dollars in R&D to develop world-leading leakproof containment systems, robotic washing processes achieving the highest levels of bacterial load reduction, and a suite of space-optimising accessories that enable hands-free operation and point-of-use accessibility.

Sharpsmart recognises that a clinical environment requires a clinical solution - Safety in an infection controlled environment is not simply a ‘nice to have’. 

With a national service infrastucture across Great Britain and years of collective experience and expertise in the clinical space, Sharpsmart is the unrivalled expert in infection risk reduction sharps and infectious waste solutions. In eighteen years of servicing thousands of British healthcare brands, Sharpsmart has earned itself the reputation of not simply a “provider” of solutions, but a “partner”.
Sharpsmart’s advocacy for safer hospital waste solutions has helped rewrite global hospital standards, its peer reviewed pedigree has earned it best-in-class recognition worldwide, and its commitment to environmental sustainability has driven the innovation of a suite of reusable products, in-hospital waste solutions and non-incineration waste treatment technologies that dramatically reduce CO2 burden.
