The Sharps Disposal Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) is a comprehensive document outlining the safety steps, main hazards, risks and controls for the safe disposal of sharps.
Sharps can include hypodermic and suture needles, intravenous blood collection devices, phlebotomy devices and scalpels. Most sharps injuries occur when disposing sharps (unsuitable container design/location, recapping before disposal, and over filling disposal containers).
