A “sharp” is anything that can puncture, cut or lacerate the skin. For example, a hypodermic needle, a utility knife or broken glass. All sharps have the potential to cause injury through cuts or puncture wounds. In addition, many sharps can be contaminated with blood or bodily fluids, posing a serious risk of spreading infection or blood-borne diseases like HIV or Hepatitis.

This Sharps Awareness course will teach employees the best practices for the safe and responsible use and disposal of sharps.
