What Are Sharps?
Any biohazardous material made up of used “sharps” that can puncture or lacerate the skin and is contaminated with bodily fluids is called “sharps” waste.
“The department of occupational safety and health administration (OSHA) in the U.S. estimates 5.6 million healthcare workers that are handling medical equipment such as needles, syringes, and scalpels are at risk of exposure to blood borne pathogens from sharps-related injuries.”
If doctors, medical clinics, hospitals, veterinary practices and other medical related facilities do not dispose of sharps waste safely, there could be a spread of blood-borne diseases throughout society.
Unfortunately, it is common for healthcare workers to encounter sharps waste and become infected. The danger of contamination by sharps waste is real. Medical facilities must dispose of sharps containers properly. There is great danger to the medical personnel and the general public.
Sharps Container Disposal – Eliminating The Dangers Of Sharps Waste
Sharps container disposal sites are specially designed facilities that must be compliant with all provincial and national regulations. There are two main methods of sterilizing sharps waste.
The first method involves putting sharps waste in an autoclave. This puts the sharps under very high pressure for 15-20 minutes to “deactivate” all bacteria and viruses on any material. If we find the bacteria has not been completely neutralized we will proceed to incinerate the waste to ashes
An incinerator uses extremely high temperatures. Organic substances on sharps waste are heated until it is thoroughly neutralized. This treatment is often used on chemotherapy sharps waste.
