Clinically Engineered containers for all waste streams
With clear labelling, safe operating instructions, and distinct container colours to distinguish waste streams, Sharpsmart has become recognised as a leading expert in healthcare waste containment innovation and compliance. Sharpsmart offers clinically engineered products for the safe handling of all healthcare waste streams including clinical waste, pharmaceutical, cytotoxic, hazardous and infectious sharps.
Changing the world one sharp at a time
Peer reviewed in some of the world’s leading medical journals, the Sharpsmart system has proven greater reduction in sharps injuries than any other sharps containment system in the world.
With over 5 years of research invested into its design and engineering, the Sharpsmart collector is manufactured to precise tolerances to ensure that all safety mechanisms are functional on each and every collector. Fitted with an engineered maximum sensitivity safety tray, users are protected in hands-free disposal of sharps and needles. The Sharpsmart is more than just a sharps container, it is an engineered safety device proven to dramatically reduce needlestick injury rates, minimise infection transfer, and substantially improve the risk profile of all organisations that generate and handle healthcare waste.
Comprising a range of bespoke components and blended learning tools, including bag dispensers and waste labels, the Bag to Bedside solution is designed to promote higher levels of correct segregation efficiency.
Clinical and offensive waste bins are removed from the ward and a bag system is put in place to collect waste at the point of generation, thereby significantly reducing the risk of cross contamination to the patient environment. Each bag dispenser is supported by illustrative and colour-coded waste segregation posters, ensuring that staff are able to clearly distinguish waste stream requirements by colour and waste description.
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.
