To reduce the risk of injury, the FDA recommends healthcare facilities and other waste generators follow a two-step process for proper medical sharps disposal:
Place all needles and sharps in a verified sharps disposal container immediately after use.
Overfilling containers increase risk of injury, so when 3/4 full, follow community guidelines on getting rid of the sharps container.
By following medical sharps disposal regulations, you can keep your business compliant and avoid unnecessary fees, reduce pollution to the environment, prevent injury, and prevent the spread of disease.
