As hospitals and other medical environments can often generate a lot of clinical and potentially harmful waste, it is important to ensure that correct storage and disposal systems are in place. The Sharpsguard Extra Yellow 8.5L Sharps Container (Case of 15) conforms to BS EN ISO 23907:2012, enabling the safe storage of sharps for incineration, particularly in areas of high public access.
Please note that the Extra Yellow 8.5L Sharps Container is suitable for sharps contaminated by medicinal products, excluding those contaminated by cytotoxic and cytostatic waste.
The Sharpsguard Extra Yellow 8.5L Sharps Container has been designed to provide a safer method of storing sharps for incineration in areas where there is high public access. It features a rotating chamber that helps prevent the retrieval of contents, which will be particularly important in areas where children may be around.
The chamber also provides an indication when the container is full to prevent overfilling. The temporary closure position on the lid provides extra security, and the robust handle enables safer and easier transportation for disposal.
