Sharpsguard Orange 22L XA Sharps Container for Scotland (Case of 7)
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 Orange 22L XA Sharps Container for Scotland (Case of 7) conforms to SHTN 3, enabling the safe disposal of sharps via the orange stream.
Please note that the Orange 22L XA Sharps Containers are not suitable for sharps contaminated with medicinal products.
The Sharpsguard Orange 22L XA Sharps Container has been designed to provide a safer method of storing sharps for disposal via the orange stream. The solid structure features a sliding door with temporary and final locking. This is both convenient and safer for adding to the container for disposal.
The container also includes an orange lid to allow for colour coding. This will provide a visual prompt for eliminating the chance of objects being placed in the incorrect containers. The label on the front of the container will also provide improved safety, with space for writing information including the container’s location, department, and start date.
The Orange 22L XA High-Volume Sharps Container provides hands-free access with the hinged door. This will make it easier to insert larger, bulkier sharps into the container, and will also reduce the need for hands to come into direct contact with the container.
The door can remain open at either 40 or 90 degrees, and also features a temporary closure. It includes a ‘push to lock’ function, and includes a permanent closure that increases safety during transportation to prevent sharps from escaping the container. Additionally, each container includes an absorbent pad to soak up any liquids inside.
The Sharps Container conforms to the Scottish Health Technical Note 3: NHSScotland Waste Management Guidance. This means that it meets the specifications required by the standard for the disposal of sharps that have not been contaminated by medicinal products.
Conforming to the standard will help provide assurance that the Sharpsguard Container is a safe and reliable option for the disposal of sharps via the orange stream in Scotland.
