Temporary and Permanent Closure Procedures of SHARPSGUARD Containers [Video]
For any procedure involving Sharps you will be using the required personal protection equipment like goggles, gloves and apron – so try to think of the temporary and permanent closures of the Sharps containers as part of your PPE.
When moving a container for any reason – ensure that you close the temporary closure, or when you leave a container unattended or it isn’t in use – close the temporary closure.
When the container is full (reaches the”full” mark or is full according to your Trust’s guidelines) – then pull the temporary closure tightly across until you hear a positive “click” which will mean that the container is properly closed and ready to be disposed of with the content safely locked inside. Remember to also complete the label to provide the date when the container has been closed permanently and who has closed the container.
We have a short video to help demonstrate this…
Thank you to Barrie Rolls (demonstrator) and Andy Wright (narrator) for putting this video together.
