What is Sharps Waste?

OSHA, or the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, defines sharps as devices or objects that have sharp edges or points that can puncture, cut skin, or cut regular waste bags.

Sharps waste is regulated in order to protect handlers from potential contamination and physical hazards.

Sharps Waste Containers

To dispose of biohazardous or medical sharps properly, specialized containers called biohazardous sharps containers are used.

A biohazardous sharps container is constructed using puncture-resistant material and is leak-proof on the sides and bottom.

The container is clearly marked with the biohazard symbol and has a restricted opening to prevent items from being removed or to prevent accidental injury by hand contact.
