Sharps Waste Disposal
The smarter, reusable way
to safely manage sharps disposal
Not only do we boast the "the safest sharps container in the wolrd", clinically proven to reduce needlestick injuries by up to 87%, but Sharpsmart is industry-regarded for its unique approach to total waste management. Working with all sized healthcare facilities, we pride ourselves in driving a bespoke waste management service that drives clinical outcomes across safety, sustainability, education, efficiency and total costs.
When we talk about sharps disposal, we're on our A-Game!
This is where we started, a vision that a safer sharps container could deliver significant reductions in healthcare worker exposure to needlestick injuries. This was over 30 years ago! And we're still as passionate now about this issue as we were back then. Today the Sharpsmart container is globally recognised as the safest sharps container in the world, boasting the greatest reduction of needlstick injuries ever recorded in modern literature. Backed by multiple peer review studies, and countless case studies from our healthcare partners, the Sharpsmart is quite simply the only sharps container in the world designed with adequate safety features to protect healthcare workers from container-associated sharps injuries.
Sharps waste management is not just about a container, it's about a total solution
Supporting our UN approved sharps containers is a robotic washing system that sanitises every container after use achieving a 106 log reduction in bacterial load, together with a suite of mounting, movement and location accessories that ensure containers can be seamlessly moved without risk to healthcare staff, and utilised at the point of patient care thereby minimising risk in sharps disposal. Sharpsmart is licenced to handle the collection and transport of sharps across the United Kingdom, and our operational staff are supported by a compliance team who manage all regulations that pertain to the management of sharps waste. We work hand in hand with clinical and portering staff to ensure thorough education is provided for the safe handling, containment, transport and disposal of sharps, thereby ensuring (HTM) 07-01 is adhered to, and ensuring the safety of staff in handling contaminated sharps. With hundreds of facilities partnering with us from multi-campus hospitals through to nursing homes and surgical centres, we are positioned and committed to providing the safest, most environmentally responsible, and most efficient sharps management solutions in the UK.
