Contract Cleaning Services SW offer professional needle sweeps and sharps removal services, taking care of hazardous and potentially infectious waste quickly and safely.
Effective disposal of sharps is absolutely essential, as they can cause accidental injury and carry infectious diseases, posing a threat to the general public if left exposed. Instances must be quickly and safely isolated, removed, and the contaminated area thoroughly cleaned to prevent harm.
Hypodermic needles, syringes and razor blades found in public areas, toilets, bins and disused buildings may have been used by illegal drug users. These items are specifically designed to puncture the skin & can cause the spread of blood-borne diseases such as Hepatitis B and HIV. Young children are particularly at risk, as they will often pick an unusual object up without understanding its danger.
Sharps can be made from metal, glass or plastic, and include:
Test tubes, vials and microvials
As hazardous healthcare waste, it is unlawful to dispose of sharps in any general waste bin, under the Environmental Protection Act 1990
