Sharpsguard Cyto 11.5L Sharps Container for Scotland (Case of 20)
As hospitals and other medical environments can often generate a lot of clinical and potentially harmful waste, it is important to ensure that correct storage and disposal systems are in place. The Sharpsguard Cyto 11.5L Sharps Container for Scotland (Case of 20) conforms to SHTN 3, enabling the safe disposal of sharps via the yellow stream.
Please note that this container is designed to hold sharps contaminated by cytotoxic and cytostatic waste, and should be disposed of separately to other healthcare waste.
The Sharpsguard Cyto 11.5L Sharps Container has been designed to provide a safer method of storing sharps for disposal via the yellow stream. The solid structure features a door with an aperture. This is both convenient and makes it easier to add sharps to the container.
The container also includes a purple lid to allow for colour coding. This will provide a visual prompt for eliminating the chance of objects being placed in the incorrect containers. The label on the front of the container will also provide improved safety, with space for writing information including the container's location, department, and start date.
As the Cyto 11.5L Sharps Container is larger in size to enable maximum capacity, it can be used in a wide range of situations. It is ideal for hospitals and wards where the frequent disposal of sharps is required, and will also be useful for carrying to and from clinics in between use.
The Sharps Container conforms to the Scottish Health Technical Note 3: NHSScotland Waste Management Guidance. This means that it meets the specifications required by the standard for the disposal of sharps.
Conforming to the standard will help provide assurance that the Sharpsguard Container is a safe and reliable option for the disposal of sharps via the yellow stream in Scotland.
