Sharps Toolbox Talk (UK) Mobile App
Sharps is the generic term for hypodermic needles and syringes.
How does it work?
Sharps or needles can be found anywhere. Common locations for used syringe disposal include trash bags, trash cans, under bridges, toilets, and even inside cigarette packets or drinks containers. As the Sharps Toolbox Talk (UK) app reminds us, contact with a needle can cause infection or spread disease so always seek medical advice and treatment immediately. There are numerous health hazards ranging from minor cut/wound infections, to the potential for Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) (Aids). Syringes or sharps contaminated with infected blood can transmit several diseases, including hepatitis B & C or may be contaminated with animal or human feces or urine.
