Sharps Disposal and Containers in Columbus
So what exactly are considered Sharps? Sharps are typically defined as an item that can prick, slice, or penetrate the skin, as well as anything that can puncture waste bags or cardboard boxes.
These types of items are capable of spreading infection diseases such as Hepatitis B (HBV), Hepatitis C (HCV), and Human Immunodeficiency virus, making them extremely important to regulate.
What items are classified as Sharps?
Sharps are generally intended to be used for animal or patient care in medical, industrial, or research laboratories. It is important to dispose of these items in Sharps Containers and follow the correct procedures. A few examples of Sharps that need to be disposed of include:
