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 Yellow 0.5L Sharps Container (Case of 60) conforms to BS EN ISO 23907:2012, enabling the safe storage of sharps for incineration.
Please note that the Yellow 0.5L Sharps Container is suitable for sharps contaminated by medicinal products, excluding products contaminated by cytotoxic and cytostatic waste.
The Sharpsguard Yellow 0.5L Sharps Container has been designed to provide a safer method of storing sharps for incineration. The solid structure features a non-return valve, which helps to ensure that the contents of the container will not slip out and cause potential hazards.
It also includes a yellow 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.
Compact Size Ideal for Versatile Use
