Safer Sharps Management

Reduce sharps injuries. Minimise CO2 emissions. Protect your staff and patients

If you could make your healthcare facilities even safer – would you?

As a busy healthcare professional, we understand the issue of infection control carries more weight than ever when it comes to the safety and reputation of your facility – not only with your staff and patients, but also in the eyes of the CQC.

Sharpsmart is the world’s safest and most environmentally responsible sharps and clinical waste management system, clinically proven to reduce sharps injuries and eliminate over 30% of sharps waste in its first year of use. Our innovative approach to making healthcare safer has helped facilities across the UK to:

  • Protect staff and patients by reducing sharps injuries by 25%
  • Remove clinical waste from the patient environment
  • Reduce sharps disposal costs by 30%
  • Meet - and exceed - your goals with complimentary perpetual improvement programmes
  • Reduce total sharps management costs by up to 15%
  • Free point-of-use ANTT workstations
  • Provide bespoke, traceable training for all staff

 

Designed with your safety in mind

An extensive range of safety-engineered features is what sets Sharpsmart apart from all other containers on the market. Below are just a few of the ways our system can perfectly accommodate the safety and waste needs of your healthcare facility.


WIDE APERTURE AND RESTRICTIVE SAFETY TRAY - The container is specially designed to accommodate large or awkward sharps, minimising disposal-related injuries and restricting hand access to the contained waste.

AUDITING WINDOW - See exactly how full your con¬tainer is at any given time – a feature that’s completely unique to Sharpsmart containers.

NO RISK OF OVERFILLING - Once a Sharpsmart container is full, the in-built safety tray auto¬matically closes and the FULL sign is displayed in order to restrict access and overfilling.

IMPENETRABLE AND REUSABLE - The Sharpsmart container is completely puncture-proof and has been proven to withstand an incredible 500 stringent wash cycles, making it one of the most environmentally friendly on the market.

ONCE IT’S LOCKED, IT’S LOCKED - Sharpsmart containers are equipped with both temporary and permanent locks. Once the permanent locks are engaged, the container cannot be opened or tampered with in any way.

NO LEAKS - Unlike many other sharps containers, a liquid seal fixed around the rim of the sharps container lid totally eliminates leakage of the contents during transport.

Award winning healthcare recycler

Our name might sound familiar to you. In December 2015, were honoured to have been awarded the coveted 'Healthcare Recycler of the Year' title at the National Recycling Awards in recognition for our partnership with Yeovil District Hospital, helping them to reduce sharps injury risk to staff and patients,  and significantly decrease their CO2 emissions. Here’s what they said about us:

“Before using Sharpsmart, we were having issues with sharps bins not being correctly used, increasing the risk around sharps disposal.

In November 2015, we replaced our disposable sharps bins with Sharpsmart bins. The new bins were immediately well-received by clinical staff, and have a reduced risk with disposal of sharps through their design. The bins come pre-assembled, have a loading tray and automatically close when full.

The amount of clinical waste we send for incineration has reduced to 14% of our clinical waste – a saving of 10 tonnes per year – just by removing the plastic containers."
