Healthcare Waste Containers designed for safety
Sharpsmart has reconsidered safety and security in the patient setting.
For sharps disposal, clinical offensive and infectious waste, cytotoxic and pharmaceuticals management, more is required to protect the safety of healthcare staff and patients. Sharpsmart has worked in UK healthcare for over 15 years, and has collaborated with clinicians to design the safest, most user-accessible and most secure sharps and clinical waste containment systems in the world. Puncture-proof, tamper-proof, leakproof, and hands-free to eliminate cross-contamination – we are changing safety at every step of the user journey. Unclean containers for infectious wastes is simply not an option.
Be Sustainable, Choose Reusable
99.6% reduction in the amount of plastic landfilled per annum
Upon converting from reusable containers to the Sharpsmart reusable system, one hospital achieved a 28% waste reduction and 84% reduction in carbon emissions across their 103 facilities, achieving a total waste reduction of 3500 kilos of plastic and cardboard waste per 100 beds per annum. Furthermore, a 51% reduction in container exchange labour was achieved by the install of larger Sharpsmart containers that were more suitable to volume requirements.
Compliance and Segregation How Can We Help You?
If there has been one thing we have learned in our years of serving healthcare professionals, it is simply that ‘training work is never done’.
Staff education is an ongoing process; roles change, new regulations are enforced, and areas of clinical focus respond to industry need. At Sharpsmart, we’re passionate about education because we have seen it transform safety, compliance and waste management efficiency at countless healthcare facilities, it is the X-Factor in driving staff efficiency and cost reductions!
Is the "Sharpsmart Difference" just a clever marketing phrase?
“Different” is often subjective - a different perspective, a different approach,
a different focus, vision or personal preference. For us at Sharpsmart,
DIFFERENCE embodies all these things, but it also delivers a very
different result. Reduction in needlestick injuries, reduction in waste
volumes, reduction in costs, reduction in labour, increase in efficiencies,
compliance, trust. We don’t promise a different methodology,
we promise transformation of your current practices.
Clean, Sanitised Clinical Waste Containers
We know it’s almost an oxymoron, but let us explain how Sharpsmart is leading the industry in its clean container movement…
We clean after use. That’s right… when your clinical waste container gets filled we don’t just put another bag in it and hope that someone in the next few months will clean the container. We take it away and the container gets cleaned through our state-of-the-art robotic washing machine. Made with over 15,000 parts, Sharpsmarts' mechanical washline feeds each reusable container through a 6 stage washing and quality control process, achieving a 6log bacterial load - the highest ever recorded in a bin-washing technology. At Sharpsmart we take contamination and infection risk seriously; whether it’s a sharps, cytotoxic or pharmaceutical waste container, with Sharpsmart its hygiene will be guaranteed.
