Sharpsguard Pharmi 22L XA Waste 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 Pharmi 22L XA Waste Container for Scotland (Case of 7) conforms to SHTN 3, enabling the safe disposal of waste via the yellow stream.
Please note that the Pharmi 22L XA Waste Container is suitable for medicinal waste, but not waste contaminated by cytotoxic or cytostatic waste.
The Sharpsguard Pharmi 22L XA Waste Container has been designed to provide a safer method of storing medicinal waste for disposal via the yellow stream. The solid structure can hold a greater quantity of waste for disposal, providing storage for up to twenty-two litres of medicinal waste at any one time. This will be particularly useful for medical rooms where high volumes of waste can be produced.
The container also includes a blue 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 Pharmi 22L XA Medicinal Waste Container provides hands-free access with the hinged door. This will make it easier to insert larger, bulkier items 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 waste from escaping the container. Additionally, each container includes an absorbent pad to soak up any liquids inside.
The Waste 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 medicinal waste.
Conforming to the standard will help provide assurance that the Sharpsguard Container is a safe and reliable option for the disposal of waste via the yellow stream in Scotland.
